Fairtrade Town status was achieved in January thanks to the efforts of Port Talbot Fairtrade forum.
The award recognises areas that are committed to promoting goods produced and sourced in a just and sustainable way. The event, arranged by the forum, will see Port Talbot join communities around the world in celebrating this global movement.
A two course carvery lunch will cost £7.50, half the usual price, thanks to funding secured from the Countryside Council for Wales.
The event also features guest speaker Martha Musonza Holman from Love Zimbabwe, a charity promoting Fairtrade links and social aims in the country.
Geoff White, head of planning, said: “The commitment of both local businesses and the local council is necessary to of secure Fairtrade status for an area.
“Neath Port Talbot Council fully supports the principles the movement represents, and is proud we are a Fairtrade county, with both Neath and Port Talbot now Fairtrade towns.”
The lunch takes place from between noon and 2.30pm at Blancos. Tickets are available on 01639 686527 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. More information is available from www.facebook.com/neath.fairtrade
