Truro - Proud to be a Fairtrade City
Most shoppers know that when they see the Fairtrade logo they can be confident they are buying a product that gives it's producers a fair deal.
Many shoppers think of Fairtrade as being about coffee, chocolate, wine, and bananas. But many more products are available now which carry the Fairtrade guarantee. This includes clothing, bags, and linen items made with Fairtrade cotton; beauty items; and a wider range of food and beverages.
Many retailers in Truro - from big national and international chain stores to small local businesses - carry Fairtrade choices and in some cases specialise in Fairtrade and other ethically traded products.
Truro City Council is working in partnership with Truro's business community Totally Truro and faith groups to help to promote the belief that producers everywhere deserve a fair deal.
In order to be awarded Fairtrade city status Truro the Fairtrade city partnership had to show participation by retailers, the Council, and other organisations in taking up and promoting Fairtrade goods and community understanding of the issues.
Truro became a Fairtrade city in 2007. The work of the partnership continues and we publish a guide to Fairtrade and Fairtrade outlets in Truro in the City guide and on local websites.
