Felixstowe Fairtrade Forum


Felixstowe Fairtrade Forum
The Felixstowe Fairtrade Forum

The Felixstowe Fairtrade forum is a voluntary organisation set up in 2007 to promote Fairtrade in Felixstowe. We have worked closely with the Town Council, businesses, churches, schools and voluntary organisations. We have given talks, organised events and participated in town activities such as the Carnival and Art on the Prom.

In recognition of the town’s involvement in supporting Fairtrade Felixstowe was granted Fairtrade Town status in 2009 and this was renewed in 2010 and again in 2013.

The Forum welcomes new members - both individual and corporate. If you would like to join us in promoting Fairtrade click

What is Fairtrade?

Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. Buying Fairtrade products ensures that they receive a fair price for their goods - and there is also a ‘social premium’ which goes towards providing community facilities, such as clean drinking water. Producers decide on projects democratically

Paying sustainable prices addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which can discriminate against the poorest, weakest producers.
