Domestic Fair Trade: A Unique Framework for Increasing Fairness, Sustainability, and Collaboration in Agricultural Supply Chains

Location: HM 150
Date: Sun, March 25
Time: 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM

Whether its farmers against farmworkers or retailers against farmers, different sectors of the food system are often pitted against each other. Sector isolation, however, does not have to be the norm and there is considerable value in working together toward the goal of improved agricultural production. How is cross-sector collaboration truly achieved and how is domestic fair trade currently used as a tool for creating agricultural supply chains that are centered on health, sustainability, and justice? This workshop will discuss domestic fair trade principles, concrete examples of domestic fair trade in action, and tools for using domestic fair trade as a framework for improving agriculture.
