Make Bananas Fair!

The Fairtrade banana farmers I visited in Ghana twelve years ago have since built schools, clinics, health insurance and much more with their Fairtrade premium - thanks to the hard work and dedication of farmers together with the shoppers over here buying Fairtrade. But, more importantly, the workers feel empowered knowing they are selling their bananas on better terms of trade. This Fairtrade Fortnight we're calling on the government to work with supermarkets to treat all banana farmers and workers fairly.

So, I was sitting at my desk at home the other day trying to think of something new and exciting that nobody has done before.

Go Nuts for Fairtrade

Harry Hill | Posted 30.12.2012 | UK
Harry Hill

I'm a salted peanut lover and a couple of years ago I came up with the idea for a Fairtrade peanut line called Harry's Nuts! I knew this wasn't something I wanted to make money out of - it was something I wanted to do to take my extra step to support Fairtrade. I got interested in Fairtrade in 2002 when I went out to Ghana with my brother Rod, who's a farmer in Devon, to see how it all works on the ground. We met banana and cocoa farmers and saw the real change that is possible just by changing how we shop. They grow it, sell it for a fair price and we look out for the Fairtrade mark and buy the stuff in the shops. Simple, yet genius.
