Fairtrade Borough

Fairtrade is a simple way to make a difference to the lives of the people who grow the things we love

Eastleigh Borough was officially declared a Fairtrade Borough on 7 May 2015, thanks to the hard work of the volunteers for the Fairtrade in Eastleigh Borough campaign.

The Fairtrade mark is internationally recognised as giving vital support for farmers in developing countries that are now selling their products on Fairtrade terms, bringing them a stable income, and the chance to trade their way out of poverty. To achieve and retain a Fairtrade mark the companies, farmers and workers who grow the food we love must meet a range of social, economic and environmental standards.
