Chapter Summary

Fairtrade labelling organizations international (FLO) is a membership based non-profit umbrella organization that unites national Fairtrade labelling initiatives and producer networks. Coffee became the first labelled agricultural product, partly due to the relationship between UCIRI and Solidaridad, but owes its continued centrality in the Fairtrade movement to a number of unique factors. Membership of FLO is open to labelling initiatives and producer networks. The authorities of FLO are the board of directors, the standards committee, the finance committee, and the nominations committee. The board is responsible for providing overall strategic direction for FLO, managing financial matters, appointing members to the three primary committees, and employing the chief executive officer. A majority of FLO's income is spent on producer and liaison support. In guaranteeing a fair price for farmers and workers, FLO aims to provide a measure of stability and predictability in the relationship between producers and traders.
