The Network of Asian Producers (NAP) is part of Fairtrade Labelling Organizations International (FLO) and is the representative body of farmers, workers and others belonging to Fairtrade Certified Producer Organisations in Asia.
Fairtrade certification benefits marginalized producers and workers in the Global South in four critical ways.
- First, it provides producers with guaranteed prices that are higher than conventional world market prices, particularly in volatile tropical commodity markets.
- Second, it supports organisational capacity building for the democratic groups that are required to represent small-scale producers (via cooperatives) and workers (via unions).
- Third, it enhances production and marketing skills for participants and their families which extend beyond Fairtrade Certified production.
- Fourth, it provides a social premium to finance broader community development projects, such as health clinics, schools, better roads and sanitation, and other social services.
