Number of FT Banana Farmers Decreases by 40% in Dominica

As the cost of producing bananas rises, many farmers in Dominica are turning away from Fair Trade as they are failing to earn high enough profits.  Last year, there were over six hundred farmers selling Fair Trade bananas, but now that number has decreased to three hundred and fifty farmers.  Many feel the drop in farmers is the result of the global market and not the fault of the National Fairtrade Organization.  The farmers are in need of greater support and assistance to reduce costs and increase prices.  See the full story in Dominica News Online.
