Terms of Website Membership

As an organisation, we receive requests from a range of individuals and groups asking us to promote their services or products. 

We have a commitment to treat all our stakeholders consistently and respectfully. We do not want to be seen to be promoting certain suppliers / groups over others.  Further, we are cautious about how we use our contacts and are concerned about sending out information from third parties on principle.  

We have therefore, adopted a policy that we will not allow members of this website, where there will be commercial gain, to promote their products or services.  In addition, we will not circulate information to our contacts on their behalf.

If you have any queries, then please contact Amparo Echenique, Project Support Officer (Forth Valley Orchards' Initiative)  on 01786 449215 or email

Thank you for your co-operation.
