Message from the President: World Fair Trade Organization

Dear members

We have a new name:  World Fair Trade Organization. During the IFAT AGM in Sri Lanka, members agreed to change our name by a 91% majority. We thank all our members for making their voice heard, and look forward to telling the world who we are and what we stand for.

While we have adopted a new name, we will not use World Fair Trade Organization until the label, identity and roll-out plans are in place. These still need to be considered and will be communicated to you as soon as possible. In the meantime, we encourage you to use the new strap line in your communications – including email signatures, websites, etc. – as appropriate:

IFAT- the World Fair Trade Organization.

More information on the other outcomes of the AGM will also be communicated soon.

Paul Myers

President
