Fair Trade Warriors - All Good bananas in New Zealand)
Fair Trade Warriors! (Get 'em while they're young.)
In NZ, the only certified Fair Trade bananas are All Good Bananas! I live North of Auckland, and buy mine at the New World in Orewa, or the Fruit World in Silverdale.
Update October 2012: Pak'N Save in Albany didn't sell them. I tried to talk to the produce manager (Al) but he basically walked away from me halfway through my question, muttering something under his breath about their cost. But I didn't give up - I had the idea to make a public post on the Pak'N Save Facebok page about it. I knew, from working in the AUT's student movement office who were operating and responding to students on their Facebook page that a marketing team would notice every comment of this new medium. My hunch worked. After a comment or two - they started selling them! Coincidence?
