Fairtrade turn off

A MAN says he is struggling to have Henley accredited as a Fairtrade town due to lack of interest.

A MAN says he is struggling to have Henley accredited as a Fairtrade town due to lack of interest.

Chris Baker, of Lauds Close, is part of a group tasked with relaunching the concept and has visited more than 160 businesses to discuss the idea.

In order to achieve Fairtrade status, the town must make a commitment to supporting Fairtrade and use licensed products with the Fairtrade mark.

Speaking at a meeting of the town council’s town and committee, he said: “I am less than convinced that Henley wants this. I thought it was pretty sad when Henley lost its accreditation first time round and if we did that again we would look a little bit silly.”
