What is our workers’ premium fund?

 

We want to ensure enjoying Fair Franks benefit both you and the makers of your shoes. For every pair of FAIR FRANKs sold, 5€ is put in a workers’ premium fund for the benefit of the artisans making your shoes. The aim of this fund is to improve their and their families’ livelihoods, and the communities in which they live.

The fund is distributed through bi-annual meetings with the employees at the factory. The first such meeting took place in March 2018, you can read more about that here! 60% of the fund, the majority share, is equally distributed to all employees on top of their regular salary. The other 40% of the fund is allocated to chosen development projects benefiting their communities. The projects will be chosen jointly by FAIR FRANK and our partner Hafde. Since it will take more time to find a good fit project, the first allocation of this part of the fund is planned in the next meeting taking place in September 2018.

You can track updates on how the artisans and their families have benefited from the fund by tracing your Franks. There you can also read the stories of the people making your shoes.
