Ethical Trading


Platino is a Registered Fairtrade Supplier.

The Fairtrade mark is an independent label which appears on products as an independent guarantee that disadvantage producers in the developing world are getting a better deal. For a product to display the Fairtrade mark it must meet the International Fairtrade Standards. These standards are set by the International Fairtrade Labelling Organisation International. Producer’s organisations that supply Fairtrade products are inspected and certified by FLO. They receive a minimum price that covers the cost of sustainable production and an extra premium that is invested in social economic development projects.
