INSIGHT is able to guide organisations in Fair Trade system implementation and certification
Fair Trade Certification is a third-party certification process that sets standards for food and agricultural products. The criteria are; fair prices for farmers and decent working and living conditions for workers.
Several attempts to market fair trade products were observed in the 1960s and 1970s, fair trade sales became widespread with the Max Havelaar labeling initiative in 1988 and the establishment of Fair-trade International in 1997. Fair-trade sales prior to labeling initiatives were contained to relatively small world shops (also called charity shops), operated by alternative trading organizations (ATOs) such as Oxfam and Tradecraft.
Currently Flocert is providing Fairtrade certifications in India.
