World Fair Trade Orgaization (WFTO)
The World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) is the global representative body of over 450 members committed to 100% Fair Trade. It is the authentic voice of Fair Trade and a guardian of Fair Trade values.
The WFTO operates in 75 countries across 5 regions; Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and North American and the Pacific Rim, with elected global and regional boards, to create market access through policy, advocacy, campaigning, marketing and monitoring. It is the only global network whose members represent the Fair Trade chain from production to sale.
WFTO members are organizations differentiated by their 100% Fair Trade commitment to eradicate poverty through sustainable economic development; pioneering social and environmental policy and practice and continual reinvestment in marginalised artisans, farmers and producer communities in some of the most fragile places on earth. The goal of the WFTO is to enable small producers to improve their livelihoods and communities through sustainable Fair Trade. It does this by delivering market access through policy, advocacy, campaigning, marketing and monitoring.

Emmaus International is a federation of 350 organisations in 37 countries around the world. Depending on their activities, they fall into different categories – there are communities where companions work and may also live*, volunteer committees (also known as friends’ committees), and a variety of other types.
To get an idea of the diversity of Emmaus’s activities worldwide, go to the Emmaus around the world section.
Each Emmaus International member is an independent organisation. In France they are mostly registered under the French law of 1901. If there are three or more organisations in a country, they are also members of their national organisation. In France for example, Emmaus organisations are members of Emmaus France. In Brazil, they’re members of Emmaus Brazil.
