Welcome to the Shropshire Fairtrade Coalition website. This is no longer an active site, but a historical record of previous activities. It survives just as a memorial to the work done by a group of volunteers over a period of years.
The Shropshire Fairtrade Coalition was a group of individuals, organisations and businesses from around Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin whose aim was 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. We worked with towns to help them gain Fairtrade status and businesses and organisations who wanted to offer and support Fairtrade products. Follow our history in Coalition Photos from 2006-2014.
