Fairtrade Fortnight 2016

Fairtrade Fortnight 2016

Monday 29 February until Sunday 13 March

Fairtrade means better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for small farmers and their workers in the developing world, and indeed everywhere.  this Fairtrade Fortnight is about helping the producers behind fairtrade goods feel secure, knowing they can feed their families.

As a Fairtrade City, Winchester has joined with over 500 towns in the UK in pledging to do what they can to support Fairtrade and promote the Fairtrade Mark. This means it can add its voice to demands for a trade system that puts people, not profit, at the heart of the transaction.

Becoming a Fairtrade City has brought together Winchester City Council, schools, faith groups, community organisations and businesses towards a common goal and a shared achievement.
