principes du commerce équitable

THE BEGINNINGS OF FAIR TRADE Fair trade developed in Europe in the post-war years under the impetus of charitable and humanitarian organizations. From the end of the 1950s, a Dutch association imported products from developing countries and abolished intermediaries not very concerned about profit sharing. During the 1960s and 1970s, organizations formed in the South with partners based in the North with the aim of creating equity in trade.
