Fair Trade USA Updates Seal

Fair Trade USA, the certifying body which since 1998 has sported the black-and-white-basket-carrier logo, has updated its look. Along with the new look comes a clarification of their “Fair Trade Certified” vs. “Fair Trade Certified Ingredients” policy. When introduced, the policy had come under fire from other fair trade groups, but it is now more robust and requires products bearing the label to have a higher percentage of Fair Trade ingredients. Read more about the changes and see the new logo at New Hope 360.
