The Path of an Equal Exchange Banana

In March 2011, the Equal Exchange banana team traveled to northern Peru to learn more about two cooperatives of small-scale banana farmers: APOQ (made up of 440 farmers) and CEPIBO (made up of 1400 farmers).

Watch this short video to learn more about small-farmer supply chains, how bananas grow, and how Equal Exchange and small farmers are working together to offer a different banana.

Enjoy!
