SAN DIEGO–Organics Unlimited, the San Diego-based grower and distributor of organic tropical fruit, now offers Fair Trade Certified label organic bananas for its customers.
As a pioneer in the global organic banana industry, Organics Unlimited started the new year by providing its Fair Trade Certified organic banana label along with its existing socially responsible GROW label and Organics Unlimited label.
“We passionately believe in our GROW program and know firsthand the impact it has on our growing communities,” said Mayra Velazquez de León, Organics Unlimited president and CEO. “Our Fair Trade and GROW labels are two paths to the same goal of advocating for sustainable prices for farmers and supporting growing communities. This partnership allows our customers to have two fairly traded labels to choose from.”
Fair Trade USA has built an innovative model of responsible business, conscious consumerism and shared value to help eliminate poverty and enable sustainable development for farmers, workers, families and communities around the world. That makes the program a natural fit with Organics Unlimited.
“We know now, more than ever, that consumers want to see ethically-sourced options in produce aisles,” said Daniella Velazquez de León, Organics Unlimited logistics manager. “Consumers specifically purchase organic for social responsibility reasons and the shift toward conscious capitalism is here to stay. We are the reliable one-stop shop for all sustainable organic banana options. Being a leader in organic bananas, our company looks forward to the upcoming year as we remain responsive to the marketplace and expand our foothold in the organic industry.”
Organics Unlimited has its primary farming operations located in the famed growing region of Colima, Mexico. Its reliable network of small, family farmers in Mexico and Ecuador supports peak year-round growing efforts to provide organic Cavendish bananas for the U.S., Canada and Japan, among other places.
