What does the Fairtrade mark mean?
The Fairtrade Certification Mark is your assurance that a product has been produced according to the Fairtrade standards. When you see the Fairtrade logo, you know that you are supporting farmers and workers to improve their communities; it guarantees full traceability from the farm to the shelf.
What is Fairtrade and how does it work?
Fairtrade is an international agreement between companies in developed countries and the producers of products in developing countries. It ensures producers, workers and growers receive a sustainable income for their work and products so they can improve their lives and their community.

Are there any Fairtrade RSPCA Assured products?
Yes. At Marks & Spencer, you can find RSPCA Assured chocolate flavoured milk which is also Fairtrade.

And by supporting RSPCA Assured, you are supporting farmers who care passionately for farm animals and their wellbeing.
