Put Fairtrade bananas in your fruit bowl and support farmers and workers to invest in a better future.
The banana is the world’s fourth most important food staple. Although bananas are grown almost exclusively overseas, it still tends to be cheaper than domestic apples in many US supermarkets and farmers and workers in countries such as the Dominican Republic and Colombia are finding it increasingly hard to earn a living from growing the fruit.
When you buy Fairtrade bananas, it means producers are paid at least the Fairtrade Minimum Price (if not more) and earn the extra Fairtrade Premium, which they can invest in their communities and in improving living and working conditions.
So whether you use Fairtrade bananas in your products (like ice cream or smoothies) or you’re a shopper looking to give yourself a banana boost, thank you for continuing to support farmers and workers!
