We are particularly proud of our long history as a Fair Trade marketplace. After having just attended the Fair Trade Federation conference this past April it was refreshing to see the growth of Fair Trade both in the retail and wholesale sectors. We learned a lot and had meaningful conversations. We also realized that with over 28 years in business we are one of the "old timers" in the US industry. We wouldn't be where we are without the background support of the Fair Trade Federation. Their rigorous application process gives us the confidence that we are purchasing products from groups who are making a difference for farmers and artisans and their communities all around world.
We are proud members of the Fair Trade Federation. They updated their logo this year. Look for this gorgeous logo to know that the products you purchase are ensuring fair prices for the work of artisans and farmers and that those wages are being used to send children to school, invest in clean water, and build healthier communities. One World Goods in deeply commited to that mission. Our logo is our visual representation of that mission. Now we've added the Fair Trade Federation logo to our site to show that we are backed-up by a nationwide organization that helped us to get to where we are today and represents growing network both here and abroad.
