Fairtrade certified flower farms ensure safety and good conditions for workers, important when employees are often vulnerable young women.
Fairtrade flower workers earn a wage that is at or above the national minimum wage. Furthermore, the worker association receives a Fairtrade Premium of 10% for every bunch or stem sold, which they can invest in projects to benefit their communities, including health care and education and better working conditions.
Fairtrade flowers can be found in many major supermarkets and can be traced back to the farm they came from.
