With Randy Hooper from Discovery Organics, I was able to visit the BOS Fair Trade banana co-op, near Sullana in northern Peru. Unfortunately the co-op has been devasted by extreme rainfall and flooding. Randy helped fundraise a few thousand dollars to help the co-op get by. Around 120 farmers have lost their entire banana crop, and are left with nothing. Here are some of the farmers describing their situation.
(Unfortunately the volume isn't great for the English translation, but hopefully you can get an idea of the situation)
