The banana industry or farm provides employment for thousands of people. It generates strong foreign exchange earnings that governments depend on to improve health, education, infrastructure and other social services.
Bananas are the favorite fruit in our grocery basket and are grown by millions of people working on small-scale farms in tropical regions.
Sameer and Co work with banana farmers, workers on plantations, and the banana trade to create more value for producers and ensure people get a reasonable price and decent pay for the hard labor that goes into growing this crop. Our vision is to expand intensive banana cultivation.
