Mayor Martin Reilly says he’s delighted Londonderry is now a ‘Fairtrade’ city.

Two Fairtrade producers, Alex Flores, Manager of a small Fairtrade Cashew Nut Co-operative in El Salvador and Alfredo Ortega, the Vice-Chair of the Belize Sugar Cane Farmers’ Association presented him with the award in the City Hotel.

“This award recognises the dedication and commitment of many people, from across the city, who has embraced Fairtrade as a vehicle for promoting social justice for those in developing countries who produce many of the food items that we enjoy each day,” he said.
