Scotland has achieved Fairtrade Nation status, becoming just the second country in the world to do so. In becoming a Fairtrade Nation, Scotland had to meet a range of criteria to demonstrate that it is delivering a real and lasting impact by contributing to reducing poverty, improving the lives of people that they seek to support and helping them access their rights.
