It's A Fair Trade
Beeston officially became a Fairtrade town this morning, as a banner was raised on one of the flagpoles in the square. There was some food tasting as well. The chocolate was especially good. It was pleasing to hear that more and more shoppers are choosing Fairtrade products. Even though they cost a bit more, you know the producers are being paid a fair price for their goods and not being cheated by the big supermarkets.
For more information about Fairtrade and it's history and objectives, here's a link.
