Fair trade

You can have here fair-trade coffee, chocolate, tea, or you can find fair trade toys in the children's corner.

Fair trade is a way of trade that gives growers, employees and craftsmen from the countries of the Global South the opportunity to earn a living through their own work under decent conditions.

Manufacturers within the fair-trade system sell their products for fair price, which corresponds to the costs of their work, cultivation or production, while enabling a decent living standard.

Fair trade guarantees fair trading conditions, respect for human and labor rights, and environmental friendliness. Basic fair-trade principles include:

  • prohibition of forced and child labor

  • sustainable development of local communities

  • ban of genetically modified crops

  • a more efficient approach to the use of natural resources
