What is Fairtrade?
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. The scheme ensures that commercial companies pay a minimum stable fair price for products.
As part of the scheme, Fairtrade provides a social premium, life transforming funds to benefit the community through schools, roads, health clinics, and more.
"Our mission is to connect disadvantaged farmers and workers with consumers, promote fairer trading conditions, and empower farmers and workers to combat poverty, strengthen their position and take more control over their lives."

what is rspo?
Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) was established in 2004 in response to the negative consequences of the overwhelming global demand for palm oil. Palm oil is the primary cause of deforestation of tropical rainforest in Indonesia and Malaysia. RSPO is a non-profit member organisation and a certification scheme, and its members include NGOs, institutions, purchasers, and manufacturers. Together, the members have worked out a certification standard for manufacture and traceability,
In response to the pressing global call for sustainably produced palm oil, the RSPO was formed in 2004 by founding members the World Wildlife Fund, the Malaysian Palm Oil Association (MPOA), Unilever, AAK, and Migros.
Since then, we have developed a set of environmental and social criteria that companies must comply with to produce RSPO Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO). These measures help minimise the negative impact of palm oil production on the local environment, wildlife and communities.
