The Fairtrade Mark is 25!

It's a quarter of a century since the Fairtrade Mark was launched in the UK. Powered by people and community action, it has grown from an idea about justice and fairness among a few into a household name, changing the way people think about the production of the food, drink and clothing they enjoy every day.

And so as we celebrate the past and look to the future, it's time to recognise the contributions of everyone who has battled to get Fairtrade products onto supermarket shelves. Let's raise a mug to those who have helped bring Fairtrade to high streets up and down the country, to town halls and schools, corner shops and cafes.

Chester Fair Trading Ltd (the shop in Wesley) was established 20 years ago. Volunteers from Chester fair trading (on behalf of all those who work for fair trade) would like to thank everyone who has bought fairly traded goods and enabled these special anniversaries to be reached. They would also like you to continue to buy fairly traded goods and encourage others to do so. With such a wide range of goods, food and crafts available now there is really something for everyone. Many are organic, sustainable, made from recycled materials and non-plastic.

Chester fair trading shop in Wesley Methodist Centre is open:
Monday to Friday 10am to 3.30pm
Saturday 10am to 3pm (Sunday for one hour after the 1030 service)

You are encouraged to call in to say hello or just to browse. You can shop for everyday goods or for gifts for those special occasions.

We would love to hear from any churches, schools, communities or groups who would like to sell our goods on a regular or a one-off basis. We can supply goods on sale or return and offer 10% discount if
selling regularly. Help make trade around the world increasingly just and fair while encouraging the protection of our planet.
