A few weeks ago Fruit Buyer, Jonathan Kitchens and Food Safety Manager/Conditioning Specialist Spencer Bernardo traveled to Ecuador as part of Equal Exchange’s annual banana delegation.  The delegation consisted of Equal Exchange employees, sales members from Four Seasons Distribution and a smattering of produce managers and buyers of grocery co-ops from the Northeast states.  The delegation visited the AsoGuabo banana cooperative that supplies Equal Exchange’s banana program.  AsoGuabo is a cooperative of over 100 small (under 30 hectares) banana producers.  They also visited several growers including an agroforesty producer in the mountains.  They saw all operations from growing and cultivation though harvest and packing.  Read the full story in our latest buyer’s notes.
