The business demonstrates efforts to promote and work with other FT & FTT certified businesses

What does this mean?

  • It is important that the procurement policy include a section on how the business plans to promote its work with Fair Trade (e.g. coffee, tea, wine, chocolate) and other Fair Trade Tourism businesses.
  • The business should actively seek to procure Fair Trade or other certified products where possible and also to engage with suppliers to encourage them to make these types of products available.
  • Engagement with other Fair Trade Tourism businesses is key to assist and learn from each other and also to create referrals where this is possible.
  • This type of work should include educating employees and guests on Fair Trade and the work that the business supports.
