CLAC is the network that represents all organizations certified as “Fairtrade” in Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as other organizations of fair trade; its mission is to represent and promote the interests, empowerment and development of its members and communities. CLAC aims to give assistance and training to grassroots organizations; to have an effective involvement from the various parties of its structure; to influence the creation of development and trade policies, reaching a local and international positioning; and to achieve distinction and promotion of small producers and workers’ products.
Currently, it has over 800-member organizations in 24 countries across the continent. It is structured through Country Networks (that bring together producers of different products from the same country), Product Networks (that bring together producers with the same product, but from different countries), and a Workers Network.
