How can Fairtrade make a difference in the next 5 years?

Fairtrade International has called for feedback to help strengthen its impact and make trade fairer over the next five years.

The organisation said it had been collecting ideas from those with whom it works over the past few months, but there was more work to be done.

It stressed the need for ambitious goals, and said: “For Fairtrade to be a force for change in global trade, to help tackle the most pressing issues facing farmers and workers, we need to make choices. We will need to focus our attention and resources on the areas where we can best make a difference.”
