DFTA’s processor stakeholder group includes organizations whose main activity is trade with other organizations or enterprises, and who are committed to fair trade, sustainable agriculture, and social justice. This includes wholesalers, distributors, processors, manufacturers, and marketers.
Members of this stakeholder group typically communicate directly to consumers and respond to consumer demand for traceability in products. They are concerned with ensuring transparency in multi-ingredient products and addressing the issue of volume credit, which refers to the amount of fair trade raw ingredients contained in an end product, where fair trade and non-fair trade raw ingredients are mixed together in the manufacturing process.
