The term „fair trade“ is English and means fair trading. It describes fair treatment of commodity producers, who often live in developing countries and do not have anything from our luxury e.g. in Germany. Coffee farmers and owners of cocoa plantations are still too often paid too little for their commodities and have to adjust this with child labour.

If they were all be paid fairly, children would not have to help and could be children again. Furthermore there would also be the money to pay the school fees such countries often have.

There are entire companies, who care about trading fairly. The fair traded and processed products of those companies e.g. chocolate are signed with an official label. A few of those labels exist and they all reach for the same: to be seen and be supported through purchase.
