Fair Trade Danmark is a vibrant network og shops and suppliers dedicated to promoting Fair Trade retail in Denmark and Scandinavia.
We are proud to be recognised as a national fair trade network by the WFTO (World Fair Trade Organisation). As members of WFTO, we adhere to their Ten Principles of Fair Trade and work to support their aims. In a nutshell, their principles seek to create opportunities for disadvantaged producers by means of fair trade practices and accountability. A few of our members have also been WFTO members, but all our members must annually show transparency in their supply chains by referencing these 10 principles.
If your organisation is based in Denmark you can apply to become a member of Fair Trade Danmark if you satisfy our membership criteria. We usually only accept applications if you have been trading for at least one year.
Fair Trade Danmarks full membership comes in three categories – Shops, Suppliers and Direct Sourcing Retailers. Once our Applications Panel has assessed your application form we will decide which is the most appropriate category for you. The distinctions depend on whether you sell retail or wholesale and whether you import the goods you sell directly, or buy from DK based wholesalers.
