Organics Unlimited to Celebrate GROW Month in September

SAN DIEGO August, 2017 GROW Month, a 30-day movement led by San Diego-based Organics Unlimited, a grower and importer of organic bananas begins on September 1. The GROW month initiative focuses on partnering with retailers and media to create consumer awareness of GROW’s social responsibility programs which promote healthy lifestyles. The GROW program benefits underserved communities in banana growing regions of Mexico and Ecuador through the sale of organic bananas.


Since 2005, through retailer and distributor support, GROW organic banana purchases have provided over $2 million in aid. A percentage derived from the purchase of each box of GROW organic bananas is earmarked for the GROW fund. Donations are used for youth educational scholarships, health clinics and dental and vision care in Mexico, clean water programs in Ecuador and environmental initiatives in the San Diego-Tijuana border region and more.

“We’re particularly excited this year as our social responsibility programs have expanded health care services for even more people to create additional positive change,” said Mayra Velazquez de Leon, president and CEO of Organics Unlimited and GROW. “During GROW month, we want more consumers to connect with the meaning of truly making a significant difference in the lives of the less fortunate. We want them to develop a greater understanding of the significant impact their GROW banana purchases have and recognize that they really can help change lives.”


Consumer demand continues to grow for organic produce that is sustainably and ethically grown, but also contributes to positive social change. Since its founding in 2000, Organics Unlimited has been committed to providing a truly organic and sustainable product to consumers in the United States, Canada and Asia.

People can participate in GROW month throughout the month of September and raise awareness of GROW’s humanitarian work by purchasing GROW labeled organic bananas and sharing hashtag #GROWmonth on FacebookTwitter and Instagram. Consumers will also see outdoor advertising that promotes GROW organic bananas in select U.S. cities.

Organics Unlimited encourages retailers to take part in GROW Month by purchasing GROW organic bananas and sharing information with consumers on how their purchases affect lives in communities in need. Organics Unlimited has created a GROW month toolkit of items that retailers can use in-stores and online. For additional materials and retailer support, contact
