Made In Devon
The Made in Devon scheme is designed to confirm the local origin of products sold in the county. If you are from Devon, or are simply planning to visit the county, look out for the Made in Devon logo when you shop.
What Is Classed As Made In Devon?
Affirming something really is locally produced can be complex, but the general rule is that something should have had its main ‘added value’ in Devon and that this will normally be the final process during its manufacture.
Whilst Made In Devon members are encouraged to source as many local materials for their goods as possible, sometimes this simply isn’t possible. For example, an item of clothing could have different fabrics from all over the world, however if those fabrics were cut and assembled into their final form locally, it could still be classed as ‘Made In Devon’. Conversely, even if all the fabrics were from Devon but the clothing itself was made overseas, it’s unlikely that this could be said to be local.
How Does The Scheme Work?
When a business applies to join the scheme, we audit them to check that the goods they produce can legitimately make the claim that they are ‘Made In Devon’. Only when we are satisfied will they be admitted and allowed to use the logo.
