Our Fairtrade Bananas
With ever changing market conditions and with the growing concern of sustainability for the future,
in 2010 CFUK with the CF Group's backing embarked in a strategic development for the growing of
Fairtrade produce over a 5 year period.
We currently have two farms where we grow Fairtrade Bananas and these are in two key growing countries
in West Africa - Ghana and Cameroon. Accredited within a year of each other, both farms have provided
the Group with a foothold in the sustainability of Fairtrade Bananas, while also providing much needed
support for the growers and countries we work in.
Our two farms are FLOcertified and are now supplying the UK market. We are continuously striving
for better solutions for sustainability and are now planning the next phase of our strategy. This new
certification is proof of the group's commitment to responsible production.
The Fairtrade label certifies that our bananas are grown in line with our responsibilities:
- Respecting rights at work
- Respecting working conditions
- Favouring natural products instead of chemical products
- Protection of ecosystems: water, land
- Minimum price guaranteed
- Bonus for development
- Local economic investment
