Fair Trade Supply Chain
One of the very important focus of FTF-I is to bring changes in the Fair TRADE supply chain all the actors in the chain are benefitted which ultimately leads to the better livelihoods of the artisans, producers and farmers.
Any product, be it a part of for-profit or not-for profit organization, goes through systematic supply chain and at every stage the value is added by various channels of the respective chain.
A supply chain is defined as a system of organizations, people, technology, activities, information and resources involved in moving a product or service from supplier to customer.
Activities involved in the supply chain changes natural resources, raw materials and components into a finished product which is delivered to the end customer.
FTF-I is working to ensure that the Fair Trade supply chain is more transparent and accountable to all the actors down the chain, not only in terms of cost reduction but also by increasing the product value for the consumer through an efficient communication of the values differentiating Fair Trade products.
A more efficient information flow supports the reduction of inequalities in the income distribution along the supply chain for rural communities.
