We believe that supermarkets have a responsibility for ensuring ethical standards are respected throughout all of their supply chains. Most supermarkets in the UK buy some, or all, of their bananas through Fyffes. We therefore believe that these supermarkets have a responsibility for raising our concerns about labour rights with Fyffes. We have contacted all the UK supermarkets and the majority have responded and are in dialogue with Fyffes. S0 far, Morrisons and Tesco are the only UK supermarkets who are yet to commit to sourcing sustainable bananas through the RFA or Fairtrade Foundation.
For this reason, the email to Fyffes, that you can sign below, will be copied to these two supermarkets, in the hope that they can use their influence to encourage Fyffes to respect labour standards, wherever they operate.
