  • 15. Fairtrade International calculates the total estimated retail sales value based on both out of home sales and retail sales since this more accurately reflects what consumers spend on Fairtrade products. Out of home sales come from products consumed outside of the2011 Retail home; for example in cafs and restaurants. Retail sales come fromsales figures consumer products bought in stores and supermarkets. In 2011 the following countries calculated their out of home sales value using the average out of home retail price, for example the average price of a cup of coffee at a caf: Canada, Finland, Germany, Ireland, South Korea, Spain and countries with no national Fairtrade organization (Rest of world). The following countries calculated their out of home sales value using the average retail price for consumer products bought in stores and supermarkets: Belgium, France, Italy, Japan, Sweden and Switzerland. The rest of the countries do not separate out of home sales from retail sales. Out of home retail prices often have a higher value per volume sold than the retail sale price found on products in stores. Therefore, the countries that use the out of home retail price for their calculation may have relatively higher sales values. Fairtrade International 2011-12 Fairtrade 2011 Annual Report Highlights
