Our story

Fair Trade Lebanon (FTL) – A Tale of Hope, Heritage, and Resilience.

In 2006, amidst Lebanon’s economic crisis and exodus, five Lebanese friends embarked on a journey. Their vision was clear: To improve the lives of rural communities in South Lebanon. With determination, they established FTL as a local Agro-Food and Economic development NGO, setting the stage for a remarkable endeavor. In their quest, they uncovered hidden treasures – a community of passionate souls, fiercely preserving tradition against all odds.

FTL became the beacon of hope for local producers, empowering cooperatives and numerous SMEs in Lebanon’s rural regions. Through extensive training, business development support, and market access, FTL uplifted lives, sparking a ripple effect of growth and prosperity.

From tragedy springs a beautiful story, one we proudly share. Today, we support Lebanon’s producers, fostering growth, and exporting our precious products. Together, we make a difference and build a future where Lebanese brands shine, and where Lebanon stands proudly as a beacon of productivity and sustainability.

What is Fair Trade?

The World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO), defines Fair Trade as “a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect, which seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers – especially in the South”.
