In 2014, Fairfood, Youth Food Movement, foodwatch, The Hunger Project, Wemos en FIAN Nederland launched the Good Food Alliance. Together, these organisations are dedicated to improving the food system for all people in the world. All the separate organisations possess specific knowledge, covering the entire food chain.
The International Trade Centre (ITC) is a technical agency of the United Nations (UN) and World Trade Organization (WTO). The ITC is devoted to enabling small and medium enterprises (SME) in developing countries, to become more competitive in the global markets and speed up their sustainable economic development and contribute to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals.
Fairfood International and the ITC’s Trade for Sustainable Development (T4SD) have initiated a close collaboration in connection with T4SD’s recently launched Standards Map. This web-based tool provides access to comprehensive information on private standards and complementary research aimed at increasing opportunities for sustainable production and trade.
As Fairfood advocates the use of standards and other sustainability initiatives to food and beverage producers worldwide we are looking forward to engaging in the forth-coming joint activities with T4SD, built on the synergies and complementary aspects of both organisations.
In November 2009, Fairfood became a candidate member of the IMPACT alliance. This alliance consists of Oxfam Novib, SOMO, Butterfly Works, 1 % Club and Hirda. The IMPACT-alliance has been awarded funding for five years by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as part of the MFS II co-financing system. Fairfood International is part of this application.
