The Big Carrot is committed to carrying Fair Trade products that support social justice and fair labour. We only sell Fair Trade Certified, Organic coffee (bag, bulk or freshly brewed) as well as bananas and cane sugar. In addition to these categories we offer hundreds of products throughout the store that carry one of the third party verifications for fair trade including: teas, chocolates, shea butter, soaps, tropical fruit, quinoa, spices and soy sauce.
Our in-store banana tree is a reminder to support Fair Trade. By eating one more fair trade banana a week we can achieve our goal of doubling last year’s contribution to the to the APPBOSA banana cooperative in Valle Del Chira in Peru. A contribution of this kind can contribute to fair living wages or investments in farm upgrades like a cableway where the farmers no longer have to carry bunches of bananas on their backs from the tree to the packing station. The cableway takes the strain, improving efficiency and cutting costs. The new system also increases the percentage of non-blemished fruit suitable for export. Learn more about fair trade bananas and the APPBOSA banana cooperative.
" The joyful food revolution: It is a movement that brings together people who love to eat good food and want to make a difference today for a healthier tomorrow. It is about connecting the dots between the food we eat and where it comes from. It's about building vibrant sustainable communities through respect for the people who make the food and the land that provides it."
