Fair Trade Scotland is a full member of the World Fair Trade Organisation and a registered importer of sugar, from Malawi, with the Fairtrade Foundation. We are currently working towards the new WFTO Guarantee System.
WFTO and its members believe that trade should work for people and the environment, and not at their expense. 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.
The WFTO brand has a clear message: we fight against poverty and the inequalities in trade through a new Fair Trade system. The World Fair Trade Organization is not just a name and identity, it is an idea. WFTO believes Fair Trade is a global solution.
We are working with WFTO members in Cambodia to 'Build Capacity' for their products as 'Agents for Change' to bring Guarantee System products, carrying the WFTO logo to Scotland.Producer groups - Fair Trade Scotland - Consumer. A fully open, honest and transparent supply chain.
