Fareham - a Fairtrade Borough!

Fairtrade Fortnight 2022 runs from 21st February to 6th March.

We had a stall in Fareham Shopping Centre on Saturday 19th February. We gave out free Fairtrade bananas and chocolates, and had some good conversations with those who passed by. We were grateful, as ever, for the support of local councillors, including the Mayor of Fareham, Cllr Pam Bryant; the Mayoress, Cllr Louise Clubley; the Executive Leader of the Borough Council, Cllr Seán Woodward; and Cllr Katrina Trott.


We are the local steering group for Fairtrade in the Borough of Fareham, Hampshire - one of over 400 groups registered with the Fairtrade Foundation under the Fairtrade Towns initiative. Our objective is to promote Fairtrade in Fareham, to encourage more people to buy Fairtrade goods, and more retailers and catering establishments to sell them. Fareham has been a Fairtrade Borough, fulfilling the five criteria to be recognised as a Fairtrade Town, since 2007.

Fairtrade goods are those which carry the Fairtrade Mark (left), which is an independent and internationally-recognised guarantee that:

Buying Fairtrade goods is an easy and effective way for UK consumers to make a real, positive difference in the lives of people in the developing world. A wide and increasing range of Fairtrade goods is available in a growing number of retail outlets, and their quality and price compares very favourably with non-Fairtrade equivalents. Fairtrade is an essential tool for enabling poor communities to trade their way out of poverty.
