What We Do
Fair Trade Scotland is a member of the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO). We are currently working towards the new WFTO Guarantee System.
WFTO and its members believe that trade should work for people and the environment. The 10 Principles of Fair Trade are the fundamental philosophies established by WFTO members to guide their practices. WFTO prescribes these Principles to organisations as a way of fighting against trade injustices and discrimination.
We are working with our WFTO Partner in Cambodia – Villageworks - to 'Build Capacity' for their artisan workers to bring Guarantee System products, carrying the WFTO logo to Scotland. With the launch of the new Fair Trade Tartan we are looking to bring some exciting new products into Scotland during the Autumn.
Artisan workers – Villageworks – Fair Trade Scotland – Consumer – A WFTO fully open, honest and transparent supply chain.
