London became a Fairtrade City on 23rd October 2008, and we are proud to be part of the Fairtrade Towns movement.
What makes London a Fairtrade City?
London’s status as the world’s largest Fairtrade City is because of the individuals, community organisations, businesses, schools, universities, colleges, faith groups, Councils and London-wide bodies that have made a public commitment to supporting and using products with the FAIRTRADE Mark. So thank you to everyone who has made Fairtrade more visible and available across the capital. Being a Fairtrade City is a strong signal to the rest of the world that Londoners want trade to work for people and the planet.
