Hot, good price for them atm.

Don't understand why all the supermarkets don't follow Sainsburys and sell only fairtrade ones, they sell at the same price, I guess the other 3 big ones want more profit and could not care less about the pickers.

for that reason.

Did you see this bit in my post? 'Sainsbury's have followed Asda & Tesco by lowering the price to 74p/kg'
Plus I was the one who posted the deals, I must be going bananas! :p

Anyway like I said, the Sainsbury's deal is better as ALL bananas are Fairtrade.

I wouldn't go all crazy to get fairtrade if the shops not local to you your doing more harm than good getting there. Theres also way more things in your cupboard you also need to think about, how about the tea, coffee, sugar, chocolate, how about even responsibly sourced fish. Actually lets go back to fruit have you seen the prices of fairtrade Oranges? Sainsburys have them but they are double the price last time I had a look. Are you really willing to pay the price or stop buying your precious brands?

In general Sainsburys are way more responsible than the other supermarkets they have it all available people just cant afford it or want branded stuff. Even their palm oil in products is sourced properly even in their basics range.

more like UN-fairtrade. Read the report from the Adam Smith Institute (put "unfairtrade adam smith" in google to find it)
Am am against the current set-up of fairtrade - the economics don't work they way it should.
I did complain to Sainsburys some time ago about selling fairtrade only bananas - as oppossed to offering choice to their customer, but they replied that the majority of their customers wanted it.
Suffice to say, I dont shop there anymore - at all.

The Rainforest Alliance economics and macro-economics actuallys stack up and work well.

I'm not going crazy over it, Sainsburys is the largest and also the closest supermarket in my Town and it helps that they sell fairtrade, I like the fact that they have only fairtrade bananas and its another reason why I prefer to shop there, it makes no sense to drive 20 miles to another Town for fairtrade products. Sainsburys is the most responsible I agree, but most of their fairtrade products are actually cheap if not a few pence more, which is better than Tesco and Asda. :)

I read through some of it (could not be bothered to read all of it been working since 5 :( ) and some of it may be true but not the Mexican thing, last time I checked Mexico wasn't famed for its Bananas and so therefore most of the money goes back to Ethiopia or any other third world country where the fairtrade scheme works, having had a few friends who visited Fairtrade schemes I can tell you it does make a difference to the people, even if its only a few pence it makes a difference to them. You boycotted Sainsburys because they refuse to serve non fairtrade bananas, but surely any money helping is better than nothing albeit the land owners make more money.

Sainsburys Fairtrade Bananas some of the best around at supermarkets in my opinion.
