Hello and welcome to Thanet Fairtrade Initiative.
We're dedicated to raising awareness of Fairtrade and promoting the use of ethical products on the Isle of Thanet in Kent.

The Steering Group of the Thanet Fairtrade Initiative met at the beginning of this month to discuss the way forward in light of Charlotte stepping down as our Hon. Chairperson.
Charlotte has led the TFI for over 5 years and in that time has shown tremendous dedication and fantastic commitment to the success of Fairtrade initiatives in Thanet … Thank you Charlotte, your enthusiasm over the years has ensured that the Fairtrade status of Thanet was consistently renewed and will be addressed again in 2019. There have been accolades too, such as the 2015 Creative Campaign Award for the Anglo-Japanese joint project with FROM JAPAN INSTITUTE led by Mineo Kageya, which saw local schools involvement in Fairtrade brought to life through the creativity of Karuta. It is true that Charlotte will be a hard act to follow and from the TFI Steering Group, communities and local representatives a BIG shout out of appreciation.
The TFI Steering Group have set the date for the Annual General Meeting on January 25th 2018 at Ranelagh Grove, St Peters, Broadstairs, CT10 2TE.
