Fairtrade Stockton

It's official - Stockton is still a Fairtrade Borough! After a great deal of work by the people on the Fairtrade Partnership all the evidence was collected, all the photos and press cuttings correlated and sent off. There followed weeks of waiting until out submission was evaluated. Had we done enough? Were we still flying the flag high enough for Fairtrade in the Borough?
The answer is a resounding yes. We have done enough to earn that accolade for another 2 years. We are now looking forward to getting our new Fairtrade Borough logo and using it on our publicity.
If you want to know more just click on the picture and browse.
A huge thank you is due to all the people in the borough who've bought and sold Fairtrade goods over the last couple of years, to those who've encouraged people to try something from the vast range (from avocado to zaytoun olive oil) and to those who've turned out to support events. The producers across the world do appreciate your efforts and they benefit from them.
