If you feel that the world of Fair Trade has its very own language – do not worry! With this glossary we would like to guide you through the specific technical terms used by FLOCERT, Fairtrade International and the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO).
Producer Executive Body (PEB)
A producer executive body, in the context of contract production, comprises elected representatives of the individual contracted producers. The PEB is the intermediary between the individual producers and the promoting body. It also represents the producers’ interests and ensures that the Fairtrade Premium is handled properly.
