On a related note, the Scottish Government recently commissioned an independent review of Fair Trade sales and promotion in Scotland, the outcome of which was this report, "What Future for Fair Trade in Scotland?"
The Review’s purpose was to enable the Scottish Government to further progress and maximise Scotland’s potential to achieve inclusive growth through the delivery of increased sales and awareness of Fair Trade, as key actions in achieving International Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Review sought to identify recommendations which, if implemented, would increase Fair Trade sales in Scotland, and through that for Scotland to contribute internationally to the achievement of the Global Goals by developing countries.
