March is Equal Exchange Banana Month!

Small Farmers, Big Change
March 2, 2016

Welcome to Equal Exchange Banana Month! We dedicate this month to raising awareness about our fair trade banana supply chain and how this chain transforms our communities on both ends. Wherever you fall within the supply chain, this work is about ownership, having a voice, and connecting to our food.
This March is even more special because it marks our 10th year in the banana trade.To celebrate, we’ll be promoting a new web documentary Beyond the Seal, an intriguing piece that boldly portrays the realities of small-scale banana farming.
