For over 10 years Middlesbrough has been a Fairtrade Town and has ran a full range of events and campaigns. Middlesbrough successfully renewed its Fairtrade status in March 2018.
Fairtrade in Middlesbrough is managed by the Middlesbrough Fairtrade Steering Group who are working hard to make Fairtrade products more accessible to all. Since 2009, we have seen an ever-expanding range of products and outlets throughout Middlesbrough. There are now over 100 places where Fairtrade products can be purchased and enjoyed, all of these are available in our Middlesbrough Fairtrade Directory.

Everyone can help support Middlesbrough’s Fairtrade campaign. We can all make a difference, here are some top tips:
