Banana Link and eighteen other Make Fruit Fair partners have today launched a petition calling on the EC to regulate and end the Unfair Trading Practices of retailers.
Thousands of farmers and workers are exploited every year to produce the sweet and juicy mangoes, bananas and pineapples that we enjoy. Their basic rights are often simply ignored. As consumers, we have a strong voice and can use it to urge the EU, governments, supermarkets and the wider food industry to take action to end unfair trading practices. These powerful actors need to ensure that a fair price is paid for tropical fruits and that they are produced without violating human rights or polluting the environment.
Sign our petition! Together our demand to the EU is Make Fruit Fair – now!
