A Fair Trader is a business endorsed by the Fair Trade Association of Australia as having Fair Trade at the core of everything they do.
In order to receive endorsement, businesses are required to demonstrate their commitment to the World Fair Trade Organisation’s 10 Fair Trade Principles which comprise the Fair Trade Standard.
The principles are about more than just paying a fair wage to our producers, they aim to promote fairer trading conditions and empower producers to combat poverty and fight for gender and climate justice.
When you see the Fair Traders of Australia logo you can be assured that the business has undergone a detailed assessment process to determine that they are following best Fair Trade practice across their business.
We are proud to say that Import Ants is an endorsed Fair Trader of Australia.
The 10 Fair Trade principles are what we at Import Ants strive to follow, the knowledge and skill that our producers possess is invaluable to our business, we seek to help and encourage their learning and growth as best as we can. The health and happiness of our producers and their families is critical to both their success and ours so we ensure they have access to both a safe workplace and receive fair payment.
We have invested in an on-site creche and teacher which allows mothers with young children to return to work knowing that their child will be well looked after.
Our vision is to have Fair Trade products easily available in stores to allow you the choice to buy ethically. We believe that these choices make a difference and can build a better and more sustainable world for all of us.
For us Fair Trade is a matter of Import Ants.
