Fair Trade for Kids

The Fairtrade standard ensures that producers meet certain social, economic and environmental criteria. These include ensuring that all workers in the supply chain receive at least the national minimum wage; that there is no child labour involved in production; that the health and safety of workers is safeguarded.
