Caring for the Environment One Banana at a Time

Organic farming and sustainability go hand-in-hand when producing the freshest produce with the least amount of cost to the environment. Environmental benefits include healthier soil, reduced carbon emission, increased animal and human health/welfare and improved biodiversity. This ensures only the healthiest produce reaches retail and restaurant shelves, and that is also why organic bananas from Organics Unlimited are some of the freshest, best tasting bananas available.

Healthy soil produces healthy, fresh produce

Organics Unlimited promotes environmental sustainability by banning any use of chemical pesticides in its banana growing regions in Mexico and Ecuador. Propagation of new plants and organic fertilizers also help preserve healthy soil by eliminating infections from outside sources. Organics Unlimited does not expand its organic farming into any area previously used for conventional farming. This protects farm regions and the surrounding community from contaminated runoff containing chemical pesticides during rainy seasons.

Re-used and recycled materials improve efficiency

Energy, water and material salvaging is also an important factor contributing to produce quality and shipping productivity. At Organics Unlimited, all materials used in the packing and shipping processes are either re-useable or recyclable, improving efficiency, lowering costs and benefiting the environment. Water is also reused and carefully managed to ensure preservation and conservation against potential, seasonal droughts.

Produce from sustainable environments meets growing retail demand

Working with growers using organic, sustainable methods of farming is good for business. Organic bananas grown in environmentally sound conditions are increasing as the desired choice of consumer purchases. In fact, organic food is the fastest growing segment in the U.S. food industry. Organically grown bananas contributed to one percent of organic produce sales last year, and their popularity is on the rise, growing at double digits versus other organic produce items as more consumers become educated on the health benefits of consuming organic produce!
