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 updating the Directory with the help of the University of St Andrews Fellowship students.  We are encouraging the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship to use Fairtrade products at their event in September 2014 and that FT tea, coffee and snacks are again available at the British Open when it is in St Andrews in July 2015.
