Rainforest Alliance
Rainforest Alliance is a rapidly growing community that is committed to protecting biodiversity, conserving resources for the good of the planet and future generations, and ensuring that farm workers, their families and communities are treated well. Producers whose farms are Rainforest Alliance Certified, and buyers who source products from these farms are granted conditional permission to use the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal (RAC seal) in marketing and labelling their products.
Fair Trade
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices, Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives.
