In our continued effort to be the better banana company, ONE Banana is a certified Fairtrade trader of bananas. Fairtrade is an alternative approach to conventional trade based on fairer partnerships between producers and traders, businesses and consumers. The Fairtrade standard ensures that fair and sustainable trading practices – including transparency, fair prices, labor & environmental standards, and trading with integrity – are implemented throughout the supply chain. This type of fairer trade can be a powerful driver of poverty reduction and a promoter of sustainable development. By selling Fairtrade certified bananas, we are increasing producers’ access to markets, and contributing to improve their development. Since the Fairtrade premium is invested back into the communities and contributes to support healthcare and social projects as well as infrastructure improvements; all efforts that are core to ONE Banana’s vision and mission.
