Guests from Panama

This panamais Chito Quintero, Florentina Beitia and Demetrio Jimenez from the cooperative Coobana in Changuinola, Panama. They were in El Guabo last week to study how the cooperative Asoguabo works.

– We are not a part of the Fair Trade system, but we want to be certified, says Jimenez.

Not because of the fixed price of banana, but because of the social projects that the Fair Trade premium makes possible, and because of the environmental criteria the farmers have to apply.
