About Us

About Fair Trade Hong Kong

Fair Trade Hong Kong (FTHK), founded in 2008, is a non-profit-making organization that promotes Fair Trade. We are committed to establishing a Fair Trade economy to ensure that producers in the developing world receive fair share of income, alleviate poverty, reduce inequality, and contribute to a sustainable future.

 

In Hong Kong, we are devoted to reinforcing Fair Trade through school education, publicity activities and market development. To encourage Fair Trade practices in daily life, we nurture the sense of global citizenship among young people, carry out public education and expand Fair Trade products in the market.

    Oxfam Hong Kong first introduced Fair Trade concept to Hong Kong in 2002, and kicked off the Fair Trade movement. In 2008, FTHK co-organized the 2nd Fair Trade Fair with Oxfam Hong Kong at Central Pier. Since then we have been advocating Fair Trade to all walks of life and different sectors.

     

    In 2012, FTHK officially joined Fairtrade International and became a Fairtrade Marketing Organization (FMO), authorized to promote and monitor the certification of Fairtrade products in Hong Kong, Macau and Mainland China.

    Our Logo

    Fair Trade movement stresses the importance of contributions from our stakeholders. The four lines in our logo represent the four key members in the supply chain, i.e. producers, brand owners, retailers and consumers. The development of FTHK also requires joint efforts from different sectors. The four dots stand for the four main interest groups supporting the movement, i.e. schools, business sectors, consumers and the government. FTHK strives to provide a strong connection up and down the supply chain, and to encourage stakeholders to embrace a sustainable future.
