Fair trade products guarantee that people and the environment were not exploited in their making. It is an easy thing for someone to want. However, once business owners learn of potential exploitation existing in the way some of their products are produced, it is hard to know the next steps. Luckily, Fair Trade Atlanta has compiled a list of local fair trade coffee wholesalers in order for businesses to have several options. In addition, there are fair trade versions of virtually EVERY product you can think of, available for wholesale. For help with this, please visit the extensive and very user-friendly Products page of Fair Trade USA in order to find a wholesaler for your business’s wares. In the Atlanta area, we have the following:
