Fair Trade USA… announces its #JustOneCup campaign to aid coffee farmers amid an unprecedented coffee crisis as the pandemic continues.

Fair Trade USA commends the significant strides of the following partners in fulfilling or scaling up their commitments to fair trade, sustainability, and traceable sourcing in collaboration with the ongoing Sustainable Coffee Challenge
