About Fair Trade in Vietnam

The history of Fair Trade certification labels goes back to 1989, when a sharp crisis on coffee prices pushed growers to poverty in spite of being producing a nice coffee, well above average quality. By then, the dutch organization Max Havelaar was working with them, on Chiapas (southern Mexico), and father Franz Vandelhoff had the idea of differentiating that coffee, charging the final customer a little more, cutting off the middlemen and providing farmers a fair wage. The Fair Trade certified label was born.

 The core principles of the Fairtrade Standards include: Ensuring Fairtrade minimum price which is fair market price; Ensuring producers receive Fairtrade premium from consumers through traceable trading system; Sustainable trade relationships; Ensuring fair and decent working conditions; ensuring environmental development with sustainable production.

 Vietnamese producers start to join fair-trade system in the last 5 years. Now more producers wish to participate with fair trade. The main products for export from fair trade producers are coffee, cashew nuts, tea, passion fruits. Vietnam also emerge with more spices like pepper, cinnamon, ginger in both fair trade and organic certifications.

 The bellows are existing fair trade producers that GREEN FAIR TRADE & PRODUCTION COMPANY LIMITED is working with to facilitate access to markets and value chain.
