Fairtrade certificate

Each customer that was granted Fairtrade product certification by FLOCERT receives a certificate. This document is valid for a time period of 4 years (Small Licensees: 6 years) and indicates the products producers are allowed to sell as Fairtrade or the product category traders are allowed to buy as Fairtrade.
