Ludlow is a Fairtrade town, which means that as a town we’re committed to promoting ethical and fair trade in Ludlow.

We believe that a critically important way to help people in developing countries to improve their standard of living is through trading fairly, giving small scale farmers and artisans a fair price for the goods they produce and enabling them to improve community facilities such as schools and hospitals.
We seek to support small producers who work in a sustainable way through co-operative structures, positive environmental practices and good working conditions.
We believe that trading fairly with farmers in developing countries is an extension of the same ethical standards that drive the wish to pay local farmers fairly.
