The first ever national Scottish Fair Trade Guide has been launched. There’s so much going on for Fair Trade in Scotland as the country prepares its bid for Fair Trade Nation status and for the first time the Guide brings together information about Fair Trade from every part of Scotland.

The Guide is supported by the Co-operative and the Scottish Fair Trade Forum and was produced by the Scottish media company, Hand Up Media. It’s backed by the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and External Affairs, Fiona Hyslop MSP, who describes 2012 as “the most exciting yet for Fair Trade in Scotland”.

Find out where you can buy Fair Trade products, learn about the difference Fair Trade makes to producers around the world and inspire yourself with the action individuals, groups and communities are making in support of the Fair Trade Nation campaign.
