For nearly ten years from 1996 Banana Link collaborated with partners in London and Brighton to produce a carnival troupe and float at Notting Hill Carnival to raise awareness of Fairtrade and Caribbean bananas.
Banana Link has not participated in Notting Hill Carnival recently but looks forward to being actively involved again in future.
"Carnival is an important form of cultural expression for Caribbean people at home and abroad. What better way to illustrate the prospects - and problems - for the future of the Caribbean banana industry and fair trade." Renwick Rose, Coordinator, Caribbean Farmers' Association.
