In March 2011, the banana team and Equal Exchanger’s headed to northern Peru to learn more about the two new co-operatives of small-scale banana farmers we are now working with.

This summer, Emma (our intern from the University of Minnesota), helped us create a video that takes some of the footage from our trip and transforms it into a captivating story about the path of an Equal Exchange banana.  Watch this short video to learn more about how bananas grow,  what they go through before they arrive at your house, and why, by purchasing Equal Exchange bananas, you are part of something bigger….a revolutionary people chain.

Enjoy!
