Frome is one of over 600 Fairtrade Towns across the country, 1600 throughout the world and is located in Somerset, the first Fairtrade County in England.
Fair trade is about better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers.
It’s not just chocolate…
there are over 4500 products available which carry the Fairtrade Logo including flowers, footballs, beauty products, biscuits, fruit, coffee, tea, chocolate, sugar, sweets, jewellery and cocoa.
We are putting together a local directory of shops, cafés and businesses which use or sell Fairtrade products.
We recently asked you to sign a petition to Theresa May asking her ‘ to publicly commit to post-Brexit trade deals that deliver a fair deal to farmers and workers in developing countries’.
Over 50000 people signed.
The Fairtrade Foundation are campaigning, along with many other organisations for our post-Brexit trade deals to deliver a fair deal for millions of vulnerable farmers and workers in developing countries.
