Have you ever wondered what's behind the Fairtrade sticker on the organic Fairtrade certified bananas you buy at the Co-op? Megan Minnick, our Director of Purchasing recently went on a week long expedition to Colombia to find out, and she is eager to share her experience! In this class you will learn about the Fairtrade International standards, and how your purchase of Fairtrade bananas here in Wisconsin positively affects banana growers, workers, their families, and their communities halfway around the world.
