BANBURY: A FAIRTRADE TOWN

Banbury achieved Fairtrade Town status on 11 March 2006.


What is Fairtrade?
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.
By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices (which must never fall lower than the market price), Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives. 
There are a number of conditions that have to be met before a product can be considered fairly traded and they include:

 A price that covers the cost of production

 

 An additional premium for social development purposes, for example funding to support schooling

 

 Part payment in advance to help avoid small producers falling into debt

 

 Long term trade relations that allows proper planning and sustainable production practises

 

 Fair production conditions
