Fairtrade Australia and New Zealand support cotton producer groups in India. Fairtrade-certified groups benefit from Fairtrade through guaranteed prices for their produce, technical assistance to improve quality and output, and the Fairtrade premium which the producer groups decide what to do with, often using it for education and health care for their members' communities.
