Renfrewshire Council

Fair Trade

Renfrewshire Council is proud to support Fair Trade across Renfrewshire, in partnership with a range of local organisations, and we are fully committed to fairness and sustainability both at home and abroad.

Fair trade guarantees fair prices for producers in developing countries and gives power back to both producers and consumers.

With simple shopping choices you can get farmers a better deal- meaning they can make their own decisions, control their futures and lead the dignified life everyone deserves.

Products with the Fairtrade mark guarantee that a minimum price has been paid to cover the cost of sustainable production as has a Fairtrade Premium- an additional sum of money which goes into a communal fund for workers and farmers to use to improve their communities.
