Fairtrade is about addressing poverty in the developing world through better prices. By buying Fairtrade certified products you're giving farmers a chance to sell their products at a stable price that covers their costs and enables them to support their families and invest in a better future.
Stockton was awarded Fairtrade Borough Status in July 2007. Many faith communities, work places, residents, community groups and educational establishments have been working hard to achieve the targets necessary to be granted Fairtrade status. To date there are 38 retail outlets and 24 catering establishments across the Borough selling at least two Fairtrade products.
Stockton Council supports the Fairtrade campaign by using only Fairtrade products at all official meetings.
All of the 5 major Trade Unions in the Tees Valley area and the Youth Assembly have expressed their support for the Fairtrade movement.
