You could change the world. Choose products with the FAIRTRADE Mark.» Who sells Fairtrade products in Ayr
Ayr Fairtrade Partnership was set up in December 2004 to work towards making Ayr a Fairtrade Town, encourage greater support of Fairtrade and raise awareness of the FAIRTRADE Mark. The group is made up of volunteers representing all aspects of the local community - local businesses, community organisations, churches and South Ayrshire Council.
Ayr was awarded Fairtrade Town Status on 26 February 2007, but there is still plenty of work to do to further promote Fairtrade in Ayr. We would like to see more and more local businesses, retailers, caterers, organisations and schools providing Fairtrade products, increasing the range of Fairtrade products available to everyone in Ayr.
Fairtrade is not about charity, but giving a fair deal to marginalised third world producers. The best way to support them is to buy Fairtrade products. However, the Fairtrade Foundation's public education work in the UK and the development of new products depends on donations and grants.
The FAIRTRADE Mark is an independent consumer label which appears on products as an independent guarantee that disadvantaged producers in the developing world are getting a better deal.
