The WFTO is a global authority on Fair Trade, not because we say so, but because our members make it so.  Membership of the WFTO is limited to organizations that demonstrate a 100% Fair Trade commitment and apply its 10 Principles of Fair Trade. WFTO Members are not just the pioneers of the movement but the innovators of the market.  The WFTO represents Fair Traders from grassroots through to the G8 and is the authentic voice of Fair Trade, having driven the movement for 20 years. It is the only global network whose members represent the Fair Trade chain from production to sale.  We have a dream. It is called The Sustainable Fair Trade Economy - a global marketplace where all individuals and organizations trade fairly for the good of all people and the planet; where social, economic and environmental sustainability is not only common practice but a market precondition. We are driven by the need to empower the marginalised who are the most vulnerable to the great challenges of our times. To turn our dream into a reality we have to show that we mean business. Building a trusted global brand is a key component.  Our brand has a clear message: everything the WFTO does helps bring about change for its members. The World Fair Trade Organization is not just a new name and identity, it is a new idea. The WFTO changes Fair Trade from a global struggle to a global solution.
