Fairtrade International (FLO) has published its annual monitoring report, “Monitoring the Scope and Benefits of Fairtrade: Fourth Edition 2012″, filled with statistics, stories and analysis, describing its global Fairtrade system. Since FLO was the recognition system for about 90% of all Fair Trade goods sold globally in 2012, its statistics tell important parts of the larger Fair Trade story. This report is the definitive resource for data about Fairtrade producers, products, sales, countries and more.
Some key data presented in the 108-page report include numbers of farmers and hired workers by country and by product, sales volumes & values, premium payment amounts, how premiums were used, % of producer total sales that are sold on Fairtrade terms, representation of women, and much more.
