Pendle aims to renew Fairtrade accreditation

[Wednesday 27 September 2006]

AS Pendle aims to renew its status as an ethical borough, a West Craven snack bar has won a tasty treat after coming out top in a district wide Fairtrade competition.

The winner of Pendle Borough Council's Fairtrade competition for food outlets was Joyce Wilson, of Joyce's Snack Bar in Barnoldswick.

Pendle aims to renew Fairtrade status

Joyce won a £25 Fairtrade food hamper after returning a questionnaire to Pendle Council, about the Fairtrade products her shop sells and plans to sell.

The survey was sent out to support the Borough's in its attempt to renew its Fairtrade accreditation. Pendle became the first Fairtrade local authority in the UK in 2003.

Tonia Barton, vice-chair of the Pendle Fairtrade Group, said: "We will work hard in the next few months to increase people's awareness of over 1,000 Fairtrade products and where people can buy Fairtrade in Pendle."

Gill Holden, of Pendle Council's Fairtrade team added: "I am delighted the survey shows an increase in outlets selling Fairtrade.

"This will help Pendle renew its Fairtrade accreditation over the next 12 months."

The survey has resulted in a number of outlets who don't yet stock Fairtrade products requesting more information.
