Thank you to everyone who joined in with our 13th birthday celebrations in Fairtrade Fortnight this year.


Cardiff is the World’s First Fairtrade Capital City, and we just turned 13! To celebrate, we set ourselves the challenge of having a 13-hour Fairtrade birthday break.

We wanted 13 organisations to get involved throughout the day on Wednesday 8 March. This was to celebrate our 13 years and raise awareness that the farmers who produce our food are still not earning enough.

Thank you for helping us beat our goal- we had a total of 20 organisations having a break! Also, Fair Trade Wales got over 20 Assembly Members involved on the day by meeting Dyborn Chibonga, who represents rice and nut farmers in Malawi.
