Welcome to the Dumfries Fairtrade Group

We work to raise awareness of Fairtrade in Dumfries. We meet monthly to plan events such as the Fairer World Fair (held each November) and local events for Fairtrade Fortnight. We campaigned for Dumfries to become Fairtrade Town and we are now working with other Fairtrade Groups in the region for Dumfries and Galloway to be a Fairtrade Zone.

In the links on the right you can find out more about us as well as the most up-to-date version of the directory – which can help you find Fairtrade and fairly traded products in the Dumfries area.

Look out for the Fairtrade Town stickers as you shop in Dumfries, and know that you are making a difference to the those who produce our food.

If you want to do something locally in Dumfries to make the world a fairer place, maybe you would like to join us?
