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 Great News, 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 2006-2013, and counting.

We had a great Fairtrade Fortnight 2013, from Monday 25 February until Sunday 10 March. We were privileged to have a visit from a Costa Rican Fairtrade Coffee farmer, Gerardo Arias Camacho, to Shropshire in Fairtrade Fortnight. He then departed for Cheshire and Herefordshire before returning to Costa Rica, and he was and is inspirational. More in News and Events.
