What We Do
Fair Trade Scotland is pleased to announce that they are now Guarantee System Member 174 of the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO).
This means that we will be displaying the Guaranteed Fair Trade Label on all our products.
The WFTO Product Label is more than just a Fair Trade symbol. It signifies not only that the practices across the supply chain are checked against the WFTO Fair Trade Standard, but it also represents support to the battle against poverty and inequality. Products carrying the WFTO Label are made and traded by Guaranteed Fair Trade Organizations dedicated to the sustainable Fair Trade economy. Every purchase of products with the WFTO Label supports small producers and their communities
We are working with our WFTO GS partner, Villageworks, to bring the range of WFTO Fair Trade Tartan products to the market.
Both organisations are audited, by an independent 3rd party, to ensure the 10 WFTO principles are verified throughout the trading chain. This ensures that the producer is visible in the supply chain.
Artisan workers – Villageworks – Fair Trade Scotland – Consumer A WFTO fully open, honest and transparent Fair Trade Guaranteed supply chain.
