2010: A Fairtrade Anniversary

2010 seems to be the year for fair trade anniversaries, here at Shared Interest we are celebrating 20 years at the heart of the fair trade movement. Fairtrade chocolate bar Dubble is now 10 and Chesham4Fairtrade celebrated five years as a Fairtrade Town by becoming Shared Interest members.

Colin Cartwright of Chesham4Fairtrade said “we are very pleased to invest with Shared Interest…more needs to be done to support the farms and small businesses.  A small loan to such a business can make a huge difference to whole communities.

We value the support of fair trade groups such as Chesham4Fairtrade and the intrinsic role they play in helping raise awareness of our work. As the Fairtrade Foundation prepares the announcement for the UK’s 500th Fairtrade Town we hope that many of the 500 towns certified as Fairtrade will follow in Chesham’s footsteps and take the next step in their commitment to fair trade by becoming Shared Interest members.
