Burgess Hill became a Fairtrade Town in July 2006 and has repeatedly successfully renewed its status. 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.
