All are organic and Fairtrade, some are also Demeter certified.
We are exploring ways to go beyond organic requirements and ensure that soil is replenished and ecosystems around banana fields are thriving. Some of our growers practice biodynamic agriculture. Our goal is to gradually implement advanced regenerative practices with ground cover and / or intercropping for all the others. We are also trialing innovative solutions to reduce plastic use during banana production.
In the DR, our bananas come from our own biodiverse farm, Finca La Tiniña and nearby small growers in the North of the country. All are organic and Fairtrade certified.
The farms that we source from in Ecuador are among the most diverse and beautiful that we’ve seen. Some are Demeter certified, and are also on their way to obtain the Regenerative Organic Certification.
In Peru, we have long-standing relationships with small and medium-sized farms — some of them our local farmer support office has helped transition to organic agriculture over a decade ago. All of our bananas are organic and Fairtrade certified.
