Celebrating FairTrade Fortnight
We love bananas – in fact they’re our favourite fruit. In the UK alone we eat over five billion a year.
In the last 10 years, the UK supermarket sector has almost halved the shelf price of loose bananas while the cost of producing them has doubled, trapping many of the farmers and workers who grow them in a cycle of poverty.
Does that sound fair to you?
In the developing world, bananas rank behind rice, wheat and corn as the most important staple food crops. Filmed in Canada, the United States, Honduras and France, Banana Split explores the North/South split between Canadian consumers and the people whose lives revolve around the "curvaceous fruit from the herbaceous plant."
Ben Hunt (Fairtrade Haringey) will give an overview of the Fair Trade movement, how it applies to us locally and how we can support it.
After another short film Alexis, a banana producer from Colombia, will give a short talk about what he does and answer any questions.
Places could very well be limited so do let us know that you will be there.
