The Domestic Fair Trade Association* just released their evaluation program of fair trade and social justice certification programs for food. The evaluation program currently rates 6 “fair trade” labels along many issues including whether the label adequate works to support family farmers and has high labor and environmental standards. Please check it out. Hopefully more funding will allow them to continue and expand their rating system.
