Dumfries Fairtrade Directory

The following makers, shops, cafes, hotels and B&Bs in Dumfries have a range of Fairtrade or fairly traded products.

We try to update this list regularly. Please let us know of any changes required  email dumfriesfairtrade@yahoo.co.uk

The range of Fairtrade products is increasing all the time and so is their availability.  Fairtrade confectionery – Kitkat, Cadbury’s Dairy Milk etc are widely available.  This list gives information about places that offer a wider range, particularly focusing on the smaller, independent shops in and around the town – how many have you been to?

Local makers using Fairtrade products in their range

Wee Sweetie

https://www.facebook.com/weesweetie  and http://www.weesweetie.com/

A range of sugar based confectionery including boiled sweets, fudge, toffee and caramels.
The majority of every product (at least 80%) is Fairtrade as I only use certified sugars. I also use Fairtrade chocolate, coffee and nuts where possible.
