Organic Fairtrade bananas

Our organic Fairtrade bananas not only come in organic quality, but are also Fairtrade certified. 

The Fairtrade seal shows that our bananas originated from fair trade and that during their production, specific social, ecological and economic criteria were observed. All farmers who export Fairtrade bananas have the Fairtrade certification. Regular audits ensure that the relevant Fairtrade standards are adhered to.

The seal assures the consumers that the small farmers and workers receive a stable and fair price for their fruits, a price that covers the costs of a sustainable production. In addition, a Fairtrade premium is paid for every products. The farmers, who are organised in cooperatives, decide for themselves what the premium is used for. Possible examples would be the construction of wells for drinking water, the construction or renovation of roads and schools, medical care or further education and trainings.

So when they buy bananas with the Fairtrade seal, consumers help improve the living and working conditions of small producers all over the world.

Organic bananas

The label “organic” means that our bananas are cultivated and harvested according to the standard of organic farming. The aim of this agricultural method is to produce food by using only natural substances and processes with the objective of reducing the negative effects on the environment.

Organic farming includes:

  • responsible use of energy and natural resources
  • conservation of the biological diversity
  • preservation of the regional ecological balance
  • improvement of soil fertility and
  • preservation of water quality

As opposed to conventional bananas, high quality organic bananas are treated exclusively with organic fertilisers and never with chemical pesticides.

The demands on organic farming also promote a higher animal protection standard that considers the specific needs of animals. The provisions of the European Union for organic agriculture give a clear structure to the entire EU, thereby ensuring a reliable labelling of organic products.
