Fair Trade in Monmouth.

Monmouth has been a Fairtrade Town since 2005 and renewed its Fairtrade Town Status for the fifth time in June 2015.  Monmouth Fairtrade Forum meets regularly to organise Fairtrade events  to sell and publicise the importance of Fairtrade products.  Forum members also work with other voluntary groups to provide support  and Fairtrade catering

The Fairtrade Mark ensures:

  • A fair price for producers and a long term trading commitment
  • An extra payment for community development projects
  • Fair wages and safe working conditions and the right to join a union
  • No harm to the environment.
