Fairtrade in Suffolk

Fairtrade in Suffolk


There is a strong interest in Fair Trade in Suffolk perhaps because unlike more urban areas, Suffolk has remained close to their agriculture, trades, and crafts producers and these activities remain a core part of daily life for many.

Fair Trade is about respecting the work of farmers, labourers and craftspeople worldwide and enjoying produce from developing countries that is free of exploitation. To this end, local groups have been active in Fair Trade in Suffolk, spreading the word, helping people to learn about it, showcasing Fair Trade homewares and crafts, and letting the public sample delicious fairly traded edibles.

Fairtrade For Woodbridge is a voluntary group of people living in or near Woodbridge, formed in 2004, to increase awareness of Fairtrade and work to make Woodbridge a Fairtrade Town.

The numerous branches of the Co-op in Suffolk are a great place to head for a good variety of Fair Trade cakes, chocolate, coffee, rum, sugar, tea, muesli, beer and wine. The other leading food retailers also stock Fair Trade bananas, clementines, coffee, honey, mangos, oranges, pineapples and tea.

So when you’re shopping for ingredients for your picnic, or for your evening meal, or considering buying something for your home, there are plenty of opportunities for you to include Fair Trade produce in your Suffolk shopping basket. Good news!
