Before starting this unit I only had some knowledge about FT. I only knew that it was a system set up to help third world producers through the premium pricing of FT products. After doing my research I can definitely say there is a lot more to it than that. FT allows third world producers to join through and entrance fee and compliance costs. When joining the FT network, producers have to adhere to a set of rules and standards. These include limits on genetic modification of food, limits on pesticide use, regulation on waste and water management, regulation on labor laws (no child workers), and producers must pay sustainable wages to their workers. When producers join the FT network, they are guaranteed a price floor for their products.
