Does your potential new supplier have The Fair Trade Certified™ label on their products?
Today’s blog has been written by Ryan Melowic Senior Director of Procurement Process Improvement at SafeSourcing.
According to the SafeSourcing Wiki, “The Fair Trade Certified™ label guarantees consumers that strict economic, social, and environmental criteria were met in the production and trade of an agricultural product. Fair Trade Certification is currently available in the U.S. for coffee, tea and herbs, cocoa and chocolate, fresh fruit, flowers, sugar, rice, and vanilla. TransFair USA licenses companies to display the Fair Trade Certified label on products that meet strict international Fair Trade standards.”
Today more than ever, companies care about their effect on society and the environment. Therefore, it is important to them who they buy from. By knowing that a potential new supplier has The Fair Trade Certified™ label, they can be assured that the product meets strict guidelines.
SafeSourcing does the due diligence to ensure its supplier database is packed full of quality suppliers. The Fair Trade Certified™ label is an example of one of the many requirements that SafeSourcing tracks.
