Study: 45% lower social and environmental costs for Fairtrade banana production

A study by True Price and TruCost found that Fairtrade banana production incurs 45 percent fewer external social and environmental costs as compared to the sector average – US$3.65 for Fairtrade versus US$6.70 for a standard 18.14kg banana box.

The study suggests most of this difference is due to the higher incomes or wages and better social security protection for Fairtrade producers. Read more.
