About Fair Trade
Fair Trade is similar to a normal supply chain model of business. There are producers, importers, processors, retailers and consumers. The difference is the monitoring and certification at the core of the system which guarantees that the supply chain is built on and functions according to standards of fairness, transparency and accountability.
How does Fair Trade work?
Producers and their organizations are monitored and certified by the Fairtrade Labelling Organizations International (FLO). Central Perc Coffee works to promote Fair Trade Certified products at the retail and consumer level.
FLO is structured and positioned to support the needs of producers, consumers and licensees, guarantee integrity of the process and promote the principles of Fair Trade Certification. The two organizations also work in tandem to verify and audit the sales from importers to the licensees.
