Fairtrade Mark Denmark

Evaluation Study 2015/2


Fairtrade Mark Denmark (FTM-DK) is a commercial foundation which is affiliated to Fairtrade International. FTM-DK has been receiving grant funds from Danida since 1999. The purpose of this Evaluation Study is to establish better documentation of the development effects for producers in developing countries of the Fairtrade certification and FTM-DKs contribution to this.

The Evaluation Study is assessing the relevance and the development effects of fairtrade as well as the effectiveness of FTM-DK through a combination of review of internationally available evidence and data collection in Denmark/Europe. The Evaluation Study has focused as much as possible on the three priority Fairtrade products – banana, coffee and sugar, which are important as commodities traded in Denmark.

The Evaluation Study was undertaken by NIRAS A/S from September 2014 to January 2015.
