“April 3rd 2013 was a special day in Sudbury’s history. After several years of campaigning by the hard-working local group, Sudbury became a Fairtrade Town.
Now we are trying to persuade more businesses, cafes, schools, and churches to support Fairtrade. It is great to have the support of Sudbury Town Council and to see the Fairtrade Town sign on the town welcome boards. We are doing our bit to make the world a fairer and better place. We would welcome your help.”

About Fairtrade Sudbury: Building a fairer world together
"Fairness, equality and justice are worth striving for, Sudbury can be proud to uphold these qualities by being a Fairtrade town".
A Fairtrade town is a town, city, village, county, zone, island or borough that has made a commitment to supporting Fairtrade and using products with the Fairtrade Mark. Any area can work towards Fairtrade status and everyone can be involved. By choosing to support Fairtrade, Sudbury can add its voice to demands for a trade system that puts people, not profit, at the heart of the transaction. We believe that our voices are louder when we speak together.
Sudbury Town Council, with many local organisations and businesses are very proud to support the impassioned work of Fairtrade Sudbury who achieved Fairtrade status for the town in Spring 2013. Many Sudbury businesses support Fairtrade by selling, using and supplying Fairtrade products (this includes using Fairtrade products for staff).
