22nd February - 7th March 2021 In 2014 Barry Town Council in partnership with local shops, churches and schools set up a Fairtrade Committee to raise awareness of Fairtrade products within the Town.
Fairtrade products range from tea and coffee, chocolates, wine (parents and teachers only) to clothes and sports equipment including footballs.
The Committee promotes Fairtrade awareness all year round by having stalls at various events in the Town e.g. Scouts Fete, Tuesday Market on the Square, Christmas Lights Switch On. In 2015 the Committee was successful in obtaining Fairtrade Town Status for Barry and we continually want to build on this success by promoting Fairtrade awareness.
