At Sainsbury’s, we are proud that since 2007, 100% of our bananas are Fairtrade. As our customers tuck into a delicious piece of fruit, they know it’s not just good for them but also for the people growing those bananas.
We’ve been working with Banafrut in Colombia for a number of years and over that time, our customers buying Fairtrade has made a huge difference to the lives of Colombian workers and farmers. From new housing to better schools, our contribution has started – and continues - to build stronger, more sustainable communities. This video highlights the fantastic results of our partnership with Banafrut, one of the biggest Fairtrade suppliers in the world.
