    Abstract

    Over the last few years, the Economy has been a witness to many initiatives that are broadly known as fair comercial relations or, generally speaking “Fair Trade”. These initiatives are part of a more global effort aiming at reducing the wide differences that exist between rich and poor countries. The main difference when compared with other international cooperation instruments is that it uses the market as a means of obtaining results. Unlike profit-making enterprises, it does not seek financial profits, but social and solidarity-related benefits. During this article, we will explore the aspects that characterize Fair Trade, examining the concept, its development and related institutions, as well as its relevance and limitations. Finally, we will examine the repercussions of Fair Trade on the company’s results.
