Glossary

If you feel that the world of Fair Trade has its very own language – do not worry! With this glossary we would like to guide you through the specific technical terms used by FLOCERT, Fairtrade International and the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO).

The product form describes the processed form of a product and is not limited to forms mentioned in the Fairtrade Standards. The form can vary up to the point of the product becoming a final consumer end product, eg linen, a T-shirt.
