Southend moves towards Fairtrade status


The Evening Echo newspaper reports Southend-on-Sea Borough Council’s desire to achieve Fairtrade status for the borough. This is great news, and hopefully by working together we can achieve this. To read the article visit http://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/local/display.var.2288183.0.0.php

Wholesaler directory for Fairtrade products

Recently Maureen and Helen from the Fairtrade Leigh campaign visited businesses and shops along the Leigh Road. They did this to see which Fairtrade products were already stocked and to raise awareness of the campaign.

Those businesses that currently stocked two or more Fairtrade mark products will be awarded official Leigh on Sea Fairtrade status. They will be added to our on line directory of official stockists and awarded the prestigious Fairtrade Leigh open/closed door sign to display. They will also be included in press releases celebrating their commitment to the Fairtrade cause.

As we visited the shops the response was fantastic, however many were not sure where they could source wholesale Fairtrade goods from. Never fear help is here.
