banana price wars are very benificial to the countries who eat them

I am going monkey's...<3

you can't beat bananas

Do not buy these, but Fair Trade!

Quote from fairtrade.org.uk/inc…pdf

"The majority of banana plantation workers do not earn enough
to provide for their families – some still earn less than £1
per day."

"The situation for women workers, who are mainly
employed in the packing-houses, is of particular concern
in many producing countries. Many banana companies do
not respect basic rights such as maternity leave and
regular healthcare and there are no childcare facilities on
the plantations. In fact employers have been employing
fewer and fewer women so as to avoid these
responsibilities. In addition, women are working in a
culture that has not historically challenged sexual
harassment in the workplace."

Not so healthy for the people that work for the banana importers / ripeners either

I thought all of sainsburys bananas are fair trade now

They're sold at a loss. The supermarket usually makes pennies on each kilo.

What people don't understand is if we better support poorer countries we will lose out in the long wrong, price of items going up less to spend meaning cut backs, and soon it will be them sending aid to us.

pdhroche, that is just rubbish! What you don't understand is, more than 90% of the price of bananas paid by the consumer stays in the northern hemisphere and never reaches the producers in the south. How much in comparison do you think you will loose if the prices were to go up? Hardly a comparison I should think!

Get your facts right!

Bananas are radioactive!!!!!


Everything is radioactive.

sometimes i buy apples and scan them as bananas, my secret shame

Sainsburys are doing them too.

The quality of the Banana's at sainsburys recently has been shocking. They looked fit for the bin at Weston Super Mare branch.

Lidl - 68p/kg for the last two or three months
Asda - 68p/kg for the last two months
Morrisons - finally catching up, WHAT TOOK IT SO LONG?????????????????

well you should know supermarket stalker

lol, I can't believe there's a comment suggesting the quality of the bananas will be rubbish.... it's a banana. I don't think people want to be preached at about fair trade either, it's the retailers and the government who produced the bananas responsibility, not ours.

Sheffield Morrisons has sold these at this price give or take 10p for 11 of the last 12 months, and has definitely been at this price most of this year. I got some Fairtrade bananas at this price last week.

Everything is radioactive.



More like over usage of pesticides than radioactivity.

Pesticide use poses serious threats to consumers and the environment, but it is plantation workers who apply them and on whom they often are inadvertently applied who bear the brunt of the chemical assault.

Fungicides: Aerial spraying up to 40 times per year. Some, like mancozebare, are suspected carcinogens.
Nematicides: Applied between two and four times a year. Designed to kill parasitic nematode worms, they are extremely dangerous. The use of DBCP resulted in the mass sterilization of tens of thousands of plantation workers from Central America and the Caribbean to the Philippines and West Africa.
Insecticides: Like chlorpyrifos impregnated into plastic bags and tags placed around banana bunches.
Herbicides: Are sprayed between 8 and 12 times a year. Glysophate is a suspected carcinogen.
Fertilizer: Applied regularly throughout the year.
Disinfectants: After harvest, the fruit is washed with tisabendazol and aluminium sulphate, which can cause severe dermatitis in direct contact with human skin.

Thanks a bunch
By the way don't we pay fair trade countries billions in aid. About time they gave something back. Freeloaders.

Yeah, if they weren't so heavly exploited in the first place we would have too.
