Focus of fund/fund aims:
Fifty Devon businesses have the chance to join the Made in Devon scheme with free membership for the first year
Trading Standards is offering free membership to 50 Devon businesses to join the newly launched ‘Made in Devon’ scheme. Devon, Somerset & Torbay Trading Standards have set up the scheme to provide consumers with the confidence that they are buying products that are genuinely sourced from Devon.
Businesses wishing to join are assessed by Trading Standards officers to ensure that they and their products meet the qualifying criteria; that their goods are actually made in Devon and that the component parts of products, or ingredients of foods, are sourced from within the county.
Membership also provides local businesses with access to legal advice, and regulatory and business support and advice from qualified and experienced trading standards officers – services that non-members are charged for.
To apply, businesses are asked to go to the Buy With Confidence website and complete the application form, writing “Made In Devon” in the Reference Code box to apply for the free membership for the first year.
