FAIR FOR LIFE, A TOOL FOR FAIR TRADE Fair Trade allows for greater equity in world trade from an economic point of view, allowing actors to invest in social and environmental progress.
Since its creation, Fair for Life has been a Fair Trade label based on the key notion of "responsible supply chains": taking a long-term view, making a sincere commitment and acting responsibly at every stage of the production and supply chain. Fair for Life participates in the implementation of fair trade practices in the food, cosmetics and textile sectors, whatever the origin of the products, in both Northern and Southern countries.
FAIR FOR LIFE KEY FIGURES More than 4000 references and finished products with the FFL label can be found on the shelves of supermarket chains and specialised organic distribution networks in the main consumer countries. The universality of the label has contribué́ to improve the income and living conditions of more than 235,600 small producers and workers, particularly in Africa, Asia, Latin America, as well as in Europe and the United States. Did you know? 80% of Fair for Life production is also produced organically!
5 consumer countries favour it: the United States, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. Other countries such as Finland, Sweden, Switzerland, Chile, Argentina, Brazil and India offer this label to their national markets.
🎯Fair for Life goals aligned with un sustainable development objectives The Fair for Life programme enables organisations to align themselves with 12 of the 17 UN sustainable development goals.

Fair for Life certification by Ecocert
To obtain the Fair For Life label, an independent certifying body such as Ecocert, verifies the compliance of practices with the Fair For Life specifications through an annual audit. The Fair For Life label is based on the expertise of Ecocert's teams in auditing and certifying sustainable practices.
It is possible to display the Fair for Life logo on products as long as 20% of the raw materials used in them are fair trade.
Is Covid-19 and Fair Trade compatible?
Marie Mercui, Director of the CSR and Fair Trade Department of the Ecocert group answers us:
"The Coronavirus crisis has reminded us in recent months of the essential nature of agricultural activities and the profound meaning of what a more virtuous trade should be tomorrow. We are already seeing the strengths of a trade with a more human face: when the players in the sectors know each other, they become more able to understand each other and envisage events together, uncertainty is reduced. The ability to project oneself into the future is paramount and the objective of Fair Trade, in the North as well as in the South, is to aim for the resilience of value chains."
