"Fair Trade creates a relationship between a consumer who receives a product of excellent quality and a producer who gets a fair price for it. In addition to quality we have something other sellers cannot offer the consumer—the chance to help communities develop by supporting farmer-owned organizations and care for the environment through the purchase of organic coffee." - Victor Perezgróvos, Unión Majomut Coffee Cooperative, Mexico.
