Fairtrade Town

FairtradeBurgess Hill became a Fairtrade Town  in July 2006 and successfully renewed its status in February 2010 and again in 2012.  This is due to the continued work of the Burgess Hill Fairtrade Steering Group, a group of local volunteers who promote Fairtrade products in the town's shops, local businesses, organisations and households.

Fairtrade Towns contribute to the Fairtrade Foundation's aim of tackling poverty by enabling disadvantaged producers from poor countries to receive a better deal, through encouraging support for the FAIRTRADE Mark.
