We've heard from hundreds of you that you'd love for us to offer Bananas, and we're proud to now offer a very different kind of banana than what you'll generally find at the supermarket.
These Organic and Fair Trade Bananas grown by El Guabo (one of Equal Exchange's farmer partners) are many things: they're a perfectly healthy on-the-go snack, they're a naturally sweet base to your morning smoothie, and if all else fails, they're the frozen inspiration behind your next batch of banana bread. For all the things these bananas can be, we decided early on in our search for an ethically-grown banana that one thing they will never be is a product of the prevailing global banana industry that has both historically and even recently wreaked ecological, social and political havoc in regions of the world in which bananas grow.
Equal Exchange is a worker–owned cooperative that has been leading the authentic Fair Trade movement and creating big change since 1986. We believe in a fair and honest trade system that empowers both farmers and consumers, and with your help, we are creating a more equitable, democratic, and sustainable world. Read more
