Max Havelaar is an international solidarity association that represents the international Fairtrade movement. Its objective: use trade to give farmers and employees in the Southern hemisphere tools they can use to fight against poverty.
Making a living from one's work
Coffee, tea, chocolate, rice, bananas...Many products that we consume every day are cultivated by farmers in developing countries. All too often, these producers cannot make a living from their work, as they are left alone to handle the pressure of global markets.
An international challenge
The international Fairtrade network has launched a challenge to change the world order: build a more equitable international trade system. In France, the non-profit Max Havelaar France association is responsible for developing this new form of consumption. To this end, it persuades economic actors to adopt better practices and raises public awareness.
