Answer to Question #24093 in Biochemistry for cathleen anderson
what are the social and environmental benefits that fair trade certification seeks to address in global food production?
Generally speaking, it is a balance between of food market extension and less harm for environment. Fair trade allows communities to take control of their own lives and not be dependent on charity or the government.When we buy fair trade products, the producers receive a premium above the minimum price that is invested directly back into the community. This allows the communities to improve their physical and social environment by building schools, clinics and community centers.
