Fair Trade is IBD’s Fair Trade Program applicable to agricultural and natural products in general.
Fair Trade Certification applies to companies, properties and producer groups that aim to trigger an internal process of human, social and environmental development fostered by trade relations based on Fairtrade principles. Based on an initial diagnosis that characterizes the socio-environmental reality of the organization, a Steering Committee, composed of stakeholders in the enterprise, identifies and prioritizes the main environmental and social demands that negatively interfere with this reality and from them are drawn up Action Plans aiming at continuous improvement in social and environmental aspects (Living and Working Conditions, Conservation and Environmental Recovery).

The Fair Trade Directive is theoretically based on ILO Conventions, various International Protocols such as Agenda 21, Global Compact Program and Millennium Goals, as well as standards such as SA 8000, ISO 14.000 and BS 8800. IBD is certified according to international standards standardized in ISO 65, ensuring quality throughout the certification process.
In view of the above, being certified IBD Fair Trade is a guarantee that enterprises are engaged in processes aimed at sustainable development, meeting the demand of aware and aware consumers, increasingly numerous in all countries. With the Fair Trade Program, IBD has ceased to operate exclusively in Brazil and has now operated certifications in several countries around the world.
