Fairtrade Sourced Ingredient (FSI)

A commodity-sourcing approach applicable to all products except bananas.

The model focuses on the sourcing of Fairtrade commodities and is indicated by the use of the FSI Mark. In this model, companies source one or more ingredients as Fairtrade, but not all ingredients.

FSI Licensees are offered a range of communication options, including the FSI Mark on-pack of composite products as well as off-pack claims and/or communications.
