Concerned consumers in the US and Europe are increasingly willing to pay an "ethical premium" for the social and environmental value of fair trade (FT) products. One of the fair trade criteria (aimed to enhance wellbeing and capacity building of marginalised producers) relates to producers’ health and creation of healthy working conditions. We evaluate its significance by comparing days lost for illness by FT- and non-Ftaffiliated Kenyan farmers. We find that FT-affiliation years have a significant effect, in the expected direction, on producers’ health, after controlling for selection bias.
