Podcast discusses the importance of fair trade for farmers

This week, on the syndicated podcast An Organic Conversation, host Helge Hellberg goes beyond what the organic label guarantees by asking Nicole Vitello of Equal Exchange about “the areas that Organic doesn’t cover: working conditions, true social justice and fair trade.”  This podcast was released in the midst of Equal Exchange banana month, further deepening the consumers and retailers understanding and education about the importance of supporting small-scale banana farmers.  

This week’s episode features Nicole Vitello, President of Oke USA, the produce arm of Equal Exchange. Vitello answers questions about Equal Exchange’s unique small farmer model, and what makes fair trade so important for farmers.
