St Andrews has been a Fairtrade Town since St Andrews Day 2005
Welcome to the St Andrews Fairtrade Town Campaign. The St Andrews Fairtrade Town Campaign aims to promote awareness of fair trade and to encourage a constant increase in the supply of and demand for Fairtrade products. We are delighted to have our status as a Fairtrade Town renewed in August 2013.
We publish the St Andrews Fairtrade Directory of cafés and restaurants, accommodation and shops in St Andrews where Fairtrade products are available, and of workplaces and community organisations which have pledged to support Fairtrade.
The Campaign is currently focussing on renewing our Fairtrade Town status, promoting the 90kg rice challenge in connection with Just Trading Scotland and encouraging major events taking place in the town to offer fair trade products such as tea, sugar, coffee and chocolate to spectators. We are also encouraging the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship to use Fairtrade products at the event in September 2014.
