“We fight against poverty and inequalities in trade through Fair trade, which is a global solution for poverty reduction.”
Based in Shastripuram, Agra, Uttar Pradesh, the organisation “PFT” was founded by Mr.S.C.Mittal in 1982 after a meeting he had with UK-based charity, OXFAM, following which he felt destined to start working to Fair Trade principles.
Their Vision is “to be a socially responsible organisation, working towards the sustainable livelihood of the producers & women empowerment through income generation based on regular work by inducting fair trade principles.”
As such, their mission statement is “to contribute towards the producer’s empowerment, ensuring equal & fair wages, promoting cultural wealth, identify new opportunities, fostering training and poverty alleviation through fair trade practises in the business scenario.”
