(fair trade) banana bread 


We don’t need an excuse to make banana bread around here, but if you’re looking for a good one, here’s a few. 

Davis Food Co-op Bananas are Fair Trade

Our Equal Exchange Bananas come from three small farming co-ops in Ecuador and Peru. Through democratic organization and economic cooperation, banana growers have access to global markets while maintaining agency over their business, land, and livlihoods. The Fair Trade Certification you see on our bananas means that we pay producers a fair price, which helps ensure equitable and sustainable trading partnerships endure. 

Reduce Food Waste

Banana Bread is made with very ripe, some might say overripe, bananas. When your bananas have become dark and mushy you may be tempted to toss them in the compost bin, but you don’t have to! Make banana bread or toss them in the freezer for smoothies instead.
