October is Fair Trade Month

In October, we celebrate the contributions of Fair Trade USA!  With a mission to enable sustainable development and community empowerment by cultivating a more equitable global trade model that benefits farmers, workers, consumers, industry and the earth, Fair Trade certifies and promotes the products they touch to US consumers. 

This year, Organics Unlimited joined the Fair Trade movement as an additional way to promote social responsibility within the banana industry.  We have certified some of our farms in Mexico, and the funds from the sale of Fair Trade bananas are helping with worker programs that are the things that are most important to the communities we serve. 

Fair Trade values are the cornerstone of the work they do in farming areas of the world. 

  • Empowerment: We believe in empowerment and freedom of choice as means to a better world.
  • Integrity: We strive to always act ethically and we value relationships built on honesty, mutual respect and trust.
  • Sustainability: We engage in sustainable solutions to global problems that affect the earth and its people.
  • Innovation: We transform the world through entrepreneurial creativity and lead by example.
  • Excellence: We believe that quality of life, work and performance are critical to achieve our mission.
  • Personal Development: Strong organizations rely on strong individuals. We encourage and support each other to realize our fullest potential, and will thereby strengthen our internal community.
  • Community: We value our global and internal communities’ diversity of perspectives, and know that each may hold a piece of the solution. We collaborate and partner for mutual success.
  • Fairness: We work to create opportunities and extend the benefits of globalization to all people, everywhere.
  • Impact: We build positive solutions that achieve meaningful social and environmental change in the world.

Help us to celebrate Fair Trade Month and ensure that workers everywhere receive fair wages and opportunities for a brighter future.
