Fair Trade Scotland Ltd.
We are a Social Business, that has no shareholders and no charitable status, reinvesting profits back into developing products at the start of the supply chain.
We are currently Scotland's only World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO) Guaranteed Importer Member
We are audited against the 10 WFTO principles of Fair Trade, which contributes to sustainable economic development.
We aim to be the 'preferred' Fair Trade route for Guaranteed/FT certified products into Scotland, using the only two Fair Trade audited systems in the market place.
The well known Fairtrade certification mark and the relatively new WFTO product label, which is a verification system against the 10 WFTO Fair Trade principles.
The new International Charter of Fair Trade will be launched on September 25th - a joint document with WFTO and FI - and explains the benefit these two systems have on raising the social value for producers/artisans, through responsible consumerism/procurement.
