Fairtrade Chichester

Fairtrade guarantees poor farmers in developing countries a fair and stable price for their products that enables them to support their families and invest in a better future. It is becoming a vital part of the battle against world poverty.

Supporting Fairtrade is something most people can do as part of their daily lives. Support for Fairtrade is growing both here in Sussex and nationwide.

Chichester is a Fairtrade City and became the first city in the UK to use Fairtrade gold on a public building when the cockerel on top of the Cathedral spire was coated with Fairtrade goldleaf in November 2011. Whether you are eating out or eating at home, there are plenty of places where you can buy Fairtrade. Make a choice to ‘Change today and choose Fairtrade'.

A good time was had by all at the Fairtrade cycle ride 2012
