Fairtrade South Ribble

South Ribble is proud to have been a Fairtrade Borough since 2009.

South Ribble Borough Council works with the Preston and South Ribble Fairtrade Steering Group to promote Fairtrade and encourage people to choose Fairtrade products.

When you buy products with the Fairtrade Mark, you support farmers and workers in the developing world as they work to improve their lives and their communities. 

The mark means that the Fairtrade ingredients in the product have been produced by small-scale farmer organisations or plantations that meet Fairtrade social, economic and environmental standards. 

The standards include protection of workers’ rights and the environment, payment of the Fairtrade Minimum Price and an additional Fairtrade Premium to invest in business or community projects.
