Fair Trade banana producers need consumer co-op help

Fair trade bananas enable small producers to survive and thrive -- IF they organize as cooperatives.  Organized demand through consumer cooperatives also is key.  For background on these production and marketing challenges, here is a current report from Equal Exchange, the cooperative that continues to spearhead efforts to link Latin American producers with North American customers:  http://equalexchange.coop/blog/why-do-banana-farmers-organize

Equal Exchange also sponsors "Organic Conversation," a regular podcast on fair trade and related stories: http://anorganicconversation.com/equal-exchange/
