Fairtrade

Whittington and Fisherwick Fairtrade

Fairtrade villages are few and far between but the community of Whittington and Fisherwick achieved Fairtrade status in August 2012.

Most of us are familiar with the Fairtrade logo – apparently the most readily recognised logo in the country – and there is a huge range of products (over 4,500 at the last count) from Ale to Yoghurt (and probably one beginning with Z as well) now widely available in the shops, at cafes and restaurants and on line.

Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.  Lichfield has, of course, been committed to Fairtrade for a number of years, as are the District Council and Staffordshire County Council.
