Fairtrade is an alternative approach to conventional trade and is based on a partnership between producers and consumers. Fairtrade offers producers a better deal and improved terms of trade. This allows them the opportunity to improve their lives and plan for their future. Fairtrade offers consumers a powerful way to reduce poverty through their everyday shopping.
Fairtrade International is the international non-profit, multi stakeholder body that is responsible for the strategic direction of Fairtrade, sets Fairtrade standards and supports producers.
The Strategic Relations and Partnerships unit is a facilitating unit ensuring a coherent and consistent approach to fundraising and strategic partnerships in the Fairtrade system. As such the unit:

  • Initiates and guides on developing and deepening strategic partnerships which support Fairtrade in achieving its objectives;
  • Provides guidance and tools to facilitate effective management of key relations, and as such provides backstopping and quality control for partnership and fundraising activities throughout the system (e.g. on proposal development, project design, reporting, relationship management).
