Welcome to the Shropshire Fairtrade Coalition website, to all our many readers, new and not so new
The Shropshire Fairtrade Coalition is a group of individuals, organisations and businesses from around Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin whose aim is to help promote Fairtrade. After a two year campaign Shropshire, including Telford & Wrekin, gained Fairtrade County status from the Fairtrade Foundation in 2007, and this was renewed in 2008 and again in 2011 and again in Fairtrade Fortnight 2013. Shropshire's Fairtrade County status will be reviewed every two years. We work with towns to help them gain Fairtrade status and businesses and organisations who want to offer and support Fairtrade products. Follow our history in Coalition Photos from 2006-2014.
