People Helping People
For millions of farmers around the world, Fair Trade Certified™ products mean thriving communities, kids in school, and a healthy environment. By purchasing Fair Trade Certified products, you support the farmers who grow and provide quality tea, cocoa, vanilla, sugar, herbs and spices.
Fair Trade Certification is the internationally recognized gold standard for social responsibility. The rigorous audit system, which tracks products from farm to finished product, verifies industry compliance with Fair Trade USA criteria.
The First Fair Trade Certified Spices
We were proud to introduce the first Fair Trade Certified spices to the U.S. market in 2009 and we've carried a wide variety of Fair Trade Certified products since then, like teas, cocoa, vanilla and herbs. We are constantly expanding our line of Fair Trade Certified items.
We offer a large selection of Fair Trade Certified loose-leaf teas. Every purchase returns a premium directly to the tea workers' communities for projects like hiring school teachers, building maternal health clinics, and bringing electricity to their villages.
Seeing the Positive Effects of Fair Trade
As we have traveled the world, we've seen firsthand the positive effects of Fair Trade.
We've seen the schools and health care facilities at tea estates in various regions of India funded by Fair Trade Premiums and talked with the workers who have a say in how the money is used in their communities. We've seen windmills and biodynamic agriculture attesting to their commitment to maintain their land for future generations. After meeting the workers and families of these communities, we know the impact Fair Trade Premiums can have.
When you sip a Frontier organic Fair Trade Certified tea or flavor your food with a Fair Trade Certified spice, that certification ensures that standards have been met for wages, living conditions and working conditions — and that the communities where the products are grown will benefit.
Americans live in the wealthiest nation in the world — and yet many of the foods and products we buy are produced by some of the world's poorest people. To make sure that a portion of the money you spend is re-invested in a socially responsible, ethical way, buy Fair Trade Certified products whenever they are available. There is no better way to support Fair Trade than with the dollars you spend.
