Founded in 1988, Altromercato is the main fair trade organization in Italy and one of the biggest in the world. It works every day to keep on being a point of reference in the promotion and implementation of fair trade practices in favor of a sustainable development.
ALTROMERCATO.IT works with about 150 organizations, formed by tens of thousands of craftsmen and farmers from 50 countries. It ensures the import of products at fair prices to promote the real costs of production, and grants a fair retribution to the labor; it ensures transparency in the cooperation and continuity in commercial relations: it actively supports organic growing and promotes projects of social and environmental self-development.
The website is the place where Altromercato presents its products and the stories that generated them, to take them all over Italy and, through the e-Commerce section, to the rest of the world.
