FARMING FAIRLY. TRADING FAIRLY.Our parent company Uniban counts more Fair Trade Certified farms than any other banana company. Fair Trade not only provides a way to improve growers’ incomes and workers’ wages, but also provides infrastructure and support for self-governed life improvement projects. In addition, it encourages farming and business practices that ensure environmental sustainability.
Through Fair Trade, farmers receive a minimum set price for their crops, as well as financial and technical support, safe working conditions, economic development, and education. They become stakeholders and reinvest profits to strengthen their business and communities, including health clinics, schools, housing and leadership training. Fair Trade certification also ensures that farmers obey all internationally monitored environmental standards and implement sustainable practices.
