The Certificate was presented by Rev. John Boardman, Chair of the Sudbury Towards Fairtrade organisation. He said “My wife Ann and I have supported Fairtrade for many years. Before coming to Sudbury in 2009, we helped Pickering in North Yorkshire to become a Fairtrade Town. We’ve now set our sights on helping Sudbury do the same.”
Paul Mackman, Director, said “As a business, we’ve been committed to buying Fairtrade products, and have supported Sudbury Towards Fairtrade, for a long time. We’re delighted to have this recognition and hope many more local companies will do the same.”
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. By becoming a Fairtrade town, Sudbury is demonstrating a commitment to supporting Fairtrade and using products with the Fairtrade Mark.
