Stick with Foncho!

With the typical price of a banana in the UK over the last 10 years halving, while the cost of production has doubled, Fairtrade launches the Make Bananas Fair campaign to highlight the damaging effect of retail price wars. Colombian banana farmer Foncho arrives in the UK to ask campigners and consumers to ‘stick with him’ and ask the UK Government to intervene and stop the pressure on banana farmers and workers. Over 70,000 people sign his petition.
