Margaret Floyd
Nutrition & Dietetics

If you want to feel even better about your purchase, choose organic and certified fair-trade coffee. The Fair Trade Certified label "guarantees consumers that strict economic, social, and environmental criteria were met in the production and trade of an agricultural product," as explained on the TransFair USA website.
