ONE Banana certified Fairtrade

ONE Banana, The Better Banana Company, recently 
announced that it will be selling and sourcing 
Fairtrade bananas. The company now officially 
joins the ranks of the world’s most sustainable, 
progressive and responsible food growers.

ONE’s certification was issued by FLO-CERT, a global certification and verification body whose main role is to independently certify Fairtrade products. The Fairtrade certification approval process requires ONE to guarantee a minimum price and a premium payment, which ONE invests back into the communities where it grows its bananas. By becoming Fairtrade certified, ONE further exhibits its commitment to the communities it supports by ensuring that FLO-CERT’s relevant social, economic and environmental standards are being met.

As an organization, ONE is committed to improving and maintaining good working conditions, implementing reasonable prices and helping to support the surrounding economies and communities. The Fairtrade designation helps create new levels of openness and transparency throughout the entire supply chain and further reiterates ONE’s commitment to fairness in its day-today business operations.

ONE is a company built upon principles of supporting environmental sustainability through rigorous growing practices, fostering social good in the communities where it grows bananas, and producing high quality bananas. The Fairtrade certification is another signal to the public that ONE is acting consistently with its mission and vision. “We are thrilled to be able to offer our customers and their consumers access to purchase Fairtrade bananas. Becoming Fairtrade certified is another example of our steadfast commitment to doing our part to support our local communities and business while simultaneously helping to protect the environment.” says Bernhard Roehrs, Corporate Director for ONE Banana.

The recent Fairtrade certification joins an impressive list of certifications that ONE Banana has received. The Company is also Rainforest Alliance, GLOBALG.A.P., BASC, C-TPAT and SCS.
