Where are the markets

Currently you can buy Fairtrade products in two African countries:

South Africa

A wide variety of Fairtrade products – wine, chocolate, coffee, tea, herbs…- are already sold in local shops in South Africa, where the first South-to-South market model in Africa was launched in 2009. Fairtrade Label South Africa (FLSA) was the first Fairtrade marketing organisation in a producer country. Over the past years, the organisation has experienced an amazing growth.
