The Isle of Man has officially become a Fairtrade island, following a vote by the government.
The Isle of Man Steam Packet company is offering the products
Members of Tynwald approved a motion which will lead to greater support to food and drink producers from the developing world.
It means people attending government meetings and using the Tynwald canteen will now have the option of choosing Fairtrade tea and coffee.
The government will also encourage more firms to sell the products.
Agriculture minister Phil Gawne said the plan was to extend Fairtrade products across all government premises, including hospitals and schools.
Towns, cities or regions are granted Fairtrade status after meeting criteria set out by the Fairtrade Foundation.
They include serving Fairtrade tea and coffee at council meetings, offices and canteens and to ensure the products are sold in local shops and restaurants.
One of the island's leading firms, The Steam Packet Company, has announced it is to offer Fairtrade products on all of its sailings.
Rupert Trevelyan, marketing director, said: "As a company serving a proud island nation, we 100% endorse the principles of Fairtrade.
"This is the first of a number of product changes we are making on board, we will also be promoting Manx produce much harder," he added.
