Fair For Life
Fair for Life (IMO) is a brand neutral third party certification program for social accountability and fair trade in agricultural, manufacturing and trading operations, and complements existing fair trade certification systems. The IMO Social & Fair Trade Certification Program offers operators of socially responsible projects a solution for objective inspection and certification by a highly qualified external verifier. It combines strict social and fair trade standards with adaptability to local conditions. Their system is designed for both food and non food commodities (cosmetics, textiles etc.).
IMO Social & FairTrade Certification guarantees that human rights are guaranteed at any stage of production, that workers enjoy good and fair working conditions and that smallholder farmers receive a fair share. Fair trade improves the livelihood of thousands of smallholder farmers and workers by providing the means for social community projects and empowerment of people.
Fair For Life's products include Fair Trade the White House members' Dr. Bronners Magic Soaps and Canaan Fair Trade. For an extensive list of partners, visit their website!
