The Domestic Fair Trade Association (DFTA) is a membership organization. Our members include farmworkers and their organizations, farmers and farmer groups, retailers, NGOs, and marketer, processors, and manufacturers.
Membership in our organization is by application. We set the high bar and expect our members to be committed to the principles of domestic fair trade and continually improving their practices.
Our members are diverse in terms of function and geography. The strength of DFTA is in our ability to bring together such diverse businesses and organizations as an independent cooperative grocer in Washington, a farmworker organization in Florida, a farmer cooperative with a nationally recognized brand, a non-profit advocating for pesticide reform, and a non-profit helping local cooperatives in one place to advocate for a common vision for our agriculture system and our system of trade and commerce.
