World Fair Trade Day is celebrated on the second Saturday May every year to promote the success of Fair Trade among the consumers, development stakeholders, governments and policy makers.

In India, Public meetings, processions and cultural programs, to promote the values of Fair Trade-Trade Justice and Sustainable Development, among people in all walks of life, takes center stage during the World Fair Trade Day celebrations.

Fair Trade is a trading partnership based on dialogue, transparency, and respect that seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to and securing the rights of marginalized producers and workers – especially in the South.

Today, Fair Trade is enormously popular among the aware consumers, especially in the developed world for its commitment & adherence to social and environment values, at all levels – right from the origin of products till the level of consumption.

Fair Trade is also getting recognized world over as an potential strategy towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals 2015 due to its approach of Inclusive & Holistic development, which give due emphasis to the development needs of the marginalized people and the attention given to protect environment. Fair Trade also sternly stands against of Child Labour and gender inequality.

In India, at present Fair Trade provides dignified income and development opportunities to 100000 poor and marginalized producers including artisans and farmers. As in the case of these producers, Fair Trade if promoted widely can become an effective tool towards extending development avenues to the marginalized people in India.

Fair Trade due to its inherent voluntary (Fair Trade) standards & related systems to ensure Dignified Income and Fair Deal becomes very much relevant to producers & workers at the grassroots level, which consists 93% of the total workforce in the country.
