Fairtrade Initiatives

Limerick City achieved Fairtrade city status on the 22nd November 2005. Our Fairtrade status was progressed by a committed group of volunteers with the support of the Council. This is an excellent achievement for the city and great efforts have been made by Limerick citizens and businesses to maintain Fairtrade status.

Fairtrade ensures that producers in developing countries get a better deal. Fairtrade prices allow producers to meet their basic needs for food, healthcare and education. 

Limerick’s Fairtrade Committee is made up of volunteers. Each year the committee organises events for Fairtrade Fortnight and a celebration to mark the cities' birthday as a Fairtrade City.


Fairtrade activities are run by volunteers with the support of Limerick City and County Council. 

The committee runs events to hightlight Fairtrade Fortnight which is generally the last week in February and the first week in March.
