Fair Trade: How It Works

We get asked a lot about fair-trade, what it means, who certifies us and whether or not it really makes a difference to farmworkers.

In short, fair-trade is about the well-being of the farmworker.  Fair-trade certification brings consumer trust and with that comes positive change for the farmworkers.

As of 2015, Covilli Brand Organics and Agricola Ciari are Fair Trade Certified™ by Fair Trade USA. In the first three-year phase of certification We have received over $850 dollars in fair-trade premiums, selling our 100% Fair Trade Certified™ products ( and 100% organic!). Our Fair Trade Committee has completed 4 major Fair Trade Community Projects with those funds and are looking ahead to the next three years of projects.
