Definition of Direct Trade

Definition of Direct Trade

A business model where the producer deals directly with the customer. They sign a contract, they arrange the details and both parties have the chance to express their desires and come to an agreement that’s mutually beneficial.

This is a principle that takes fair trade a step further. But instead of a certification, it is based on the ethics of each person.

And that can be a beautiful, or detrimental agreement.
