How to Incorporate Fair Trade Principles in Your Gift Basket Business
Fair Trade Federation Principle #9 strives to promote and respect cultural identity of artisans, producers and fair
trade farmers. Fair Trade business practices respect the traditions & history of fair trade product producers worldwide and especially in the Global South. Those gift basket producers who incorporate fair trade products into their gift boxes & baskets are thereby directly supporting cultural identity specifically and the fair trade market in general. By consciously choosing to market fair trade products, these gift basket business owners are vowing to support workers worldwide who just want to be respected and treated fairly. They aren’t asking for a handout, just a helping hand to get their products to market so that they can feed, clothe and shelter their families.
