Oxford became a Fair Trade City in 2004. This means that the Fairtrade Foundation was satisfied that it had achieved the five criteria required to qualify as a Fairtrade Town (or City).

A local Fairtrade steering group is convened to ensure the Fairtrade Town campaign continues to develop and gain new support. www.oxfairtrade.org.uk
