In April 2017 the Fairtrade Foundation granted Fairtrade status to Halifax. This is great news, and a reflection on the many good things that are happening in the town. It is now up to us all to ensure we remain a Fairtrade Town, helping the growers and producers of the products we love obtain a decent price. This enables some of the world’s poorest to access basic human rights such as health care and education. Please continue to buy and promote Fairtrade products – it is job started, not job done.
