Background InformationThe British Association for Fair Trade Shops is the membership organisation for fair trade retailers in the UK. Fair trade branded produce, as accredited by the Fairtrade Foundation, guarantees to developing-world producers a price above the cost of production, amongst other things, and is therefore a way for consumers to boycott global trading norms that are often seen as exploitative.
