Shop Smart in Mid-Missouri

Fairtrade is a consumer-driven movement to promote fair prices and reasonable conditions for producers of primary goods in developing regions. Although there is no universal definition of fair trade, most fair trade labeling organizations subscribe to the interpretation provided by FINE (an informal association between Fair Trade Labeling Organizations International, World Fair Trade Organization, Network of European Worldshops, and European Fair Trade Association).

In our community, the following businesses provide fair trade goods at reasonable prices.
