'Globalization is the increasing interdependence, integration and interaction among people and corporations in disparate locations around the world' . This phenomenon can have good effects such as helping developing countries improve their economy or their industry but also their agriculture by bringing them new ways of production. But it can also strangle the growth and development of a developing economy. The independence of an economy is also threatened by globalization. This is the reason why the recourse to Fair Trade is a solution to ensure the bad sides of globalization. "Fair trade is the new rule to avoid inequitable aspects of global markets" . Indeed, this trend to fair trade and organically production appears as a new way to face globalization and help the developing countries to reach development. In this essay I would like to focus on the new methods used in the agricultural production and their concrete effects on the local population.
