The Executive’s policy is that all procurement should be on the basis of value for money, in the interests of the taxpayer. The Executive does not routinely purchase the types of product which are available under "fair trade" schemes. Where such products are purchased, fair trade brands may be selected where they offer value for money for the taxpayer.
