The Fairtrade Foundation is the independent non-profit organisation that licenses use of the FAIRTRADE Mark on products in the UK in accordance with internationally agreed Fairtrade standards.

The Foundation is the UK member of Fairtrade International, which unites over 20 labelling initiatives across Europe, Japan, North America, Mexico and Australia/New Zealand as well as networks of producer organisations from Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.

FTF bananas 2014 - croppedThe Challenge and Change Report highlights where Fairtrade has made a real difference for farmers and workers in 2014/15 along with what we’ve learnt. Explore different themes, including action, passion, investing, trends, celebrations – and of course, challenge and change. For each theme there’s a story to really bring the power of Fairtrade to life, and show the difference it’s making across the world.

Devon first achieved Fairtrade status on 8th October 2008 and successfully renewed its Fairtrade status as of 17 March 2010.  

To achieve County wide Fairtrade status five goals must be met

FT2008_news

  • The local council must pass a resolution supporting Fairtrade, and serve Fairtrade coffee and tea at its meetings and in offices and canteens. Devon County Council passed such a resolution in November 2007.
  • A range of Fairtrade products must be readily available in the area’s shops and served in local cafés and catering establishments. There are a number of towns in Devon that have already earned the Fairtrade Award. Each town has its own directory of where to buy and where to taste Fairtrade products. 
  • Fairtrade products must be used by a number of local work places. Devon County Council strives to be Fairtrade employer. The Met Office and South West Water are also very positive. A list is being compiled of Fairtrade employers. Can you help us add your employer to this list? See the Fairtrade at work website for help on how and why to become a Fairtrade workplace.
  • Attract media coverage and popular support for the campaign. Fairtrade in Devon continues to attract wide media coverage, particulalry during Fairtrade fortnight.
  • A local Fairtrade steering group must be convened to ensure continued commitment to Fairtrade status. This was set up in September 2007 and has been meeting every 6 weeks. All the Fairtrade Towns are represented, plus the sponsoring County Councillor.

The following towns in Devon have Fairtrade status

FT_poster_worldThe Fairtrade Schools Award now offers schools an opportunity to gain official recognition for the work they do in promoting Fairtrade to the school community. The Schools Fairtrade website has further details.

Each year during Fairtrade Fortnight schools and colleges in Devon undertake a series of activities and events to promote Fairtrade.

Devon Development Education has been coordinating Fairtrade Schools Conferences for a number of years now  for both primary and secondary schools in Devon. The aims of the conferences are always to help pupils learn about the benefits of Fairtrade and how they can promote Fairtrade in their schools. The conferences offer opportunities for pupils to learn about issues around trade and Fairtrade in an engaging and interactive way. Usually the conferences also offer an opportunity to meet and hear from a Fairtrade producer. In 2014 more schools than ever before in Devon are offering their pupils an opportinity to learn about Fairtarde and meet a Fairtrade producer. 

The University of Exeter successfully gained Fairtrade Status in November 2007. The university is a strong partner in working for county Fairtrade status for Devon. In February 2011 Exeter University made Harriet Lamb, Executive Director of the Fairtrade Foundation since 2001 an Honorary graduate.
