Welcome to the website of the Dumfries Fairtrade group –  working to achieve Fairtrade status for Dumfries.

Click on the menus to the right to  find lots of information about Fairtrade and what’s going on locally.  We are starting to add information about B & Bs in the town and surrounding area that use Fairtrade products.  If you want to contact us with updates please use the comments box.

Congratulations to Mouswald Primary School for achieving Fairtrade Status!!


The Allanton Peace Festival will be held on Saturday, 25 June from 2pm – 6pm. We will be joining with the Dunscore Fairtrade Group again this year to run a Fairtrade Cafe at this event.
Please let us know if you are able to help in the cafe on the day and/or provide Fairtrade baking. It would help the planning arrangements if we knew as soon as possible how many volunteers we can expect.

For information about where to find Fairtrade products in Dumfries click on the the link to the Dumfries Fairtrade Directory to the right.  There’s also a  section for businesses who want to find out more about using Fairtrade products.  Please contact us if you are a  business or work place in the Dumfries area already using Fairtrade products – we would love to hear from you (use the comments box).

Click on the links to the right too,  to find out about our Design a T Shirt competition, our activities during this year’s Fairtrade Fortnight, and lots more.  And if you’d like to see video of our lovely Fairtrade bunting on the Devorgilla Bridge, click on the picture below…
