We really do have the world in our shopping bags…… We found produce from Ghana, Brazil, China, Costa Rica, England, Holland Honduras Guyana, India, and even Equador. We rely on these countries for bananas, tea, cocoa, oranges, pineapples, kiwi, coffee and much much more, because Ireland does not have the right climate to grow these foods. Check the fruit bowl and cupboards at home this weekend to see how far your food has travelled.
Unfortunately the farmers who work hard growing these foods for us are not always paid a fair priceL.  BUT you and I can help change this. YIPPEEE. Next week we will discover exactly how as we go bananas for fairtrade..
