Made in Devon is made for businesses like you!
Made in Devon is on a mission to ‘support local’ and help consumers and businesses buy from bona fide Devon businesses.
We have funding from Devon County Council to provide free membership to 250 Devon businesses for their first year on the scheme.
If you qualify for Made in Devon, you’ll have the stamp of approval that confirms you’re a business that is local, legal, honest and takes fair trading seriously. You’ll be listed on the www.madeindevon.org.uk website and be part of a major marketing campaign that will promote your business far and wide.
Made in Devon members have access to legal advice, regulatory and business support and general advice from qualified and experienced Trading Standards officers – services that usually costs £85 per hour.

The Made in Devon application process is designed to help business
All businesses wishing to join Made in Devon go through an assessment by Trading Standards officers which gives them the opportunity to make sure that they are fully up to speed with all the legislation and guidance relevant to their business and industry. This includes useful advice to help improve systems and customer service.
This assessment also checks that the business meets the qualifying membership criteria – that the business is based in Devon and uses services and characteristic materials and ingredients produced or grown within the county.
Buy With Confidence is also included
Anyone who applies for Made in Devon goes through the Buy With Confidence application process and automatically becomes a member, receiving all the Buy With Confidence scheme benefits as well.

Please note that businesses in Torbay and Plymouth do not qualify for free membership. Costs for membership can be found on the Buy With Confidence Website here.
