Buying Whole Trade® products ensures fair treatment and equitable pay for workers, more money for hardworking producers through social premiums and sound environmental practices in the developing countries where the products are grown. And if that’s not enough, 1% of product sales are donated to the Whole Planet Foundation for poverty alleviation.
