In 1992, the non-profit organization TransFair began to support economically disadvantaged families of producers in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. The producers are being guaranteed a fair price for their products.
TransFair itself does not trade goods, but rather assigns its seal to products that are dealt fairly.
T.Port sealed a license contract with TransFair in 1998. Since then, the brands Fairnando and Fairnando Bio are being imported at a fixed price.
