Meet Foncho

Meet Foncho

Foncho is a banana farmer from Cienaga, Colombia. He’s part of a Fairtrade certified co-operative called Coobafrio.

In many ways he’s just like you. He works hard, he loves spending time with his family and has a passion for football.

Foncho wants to help all banana farmers and workers like him to get a fair deal for their produce, and he’s visiting the UK this Fairtrade Fortnight (24 February – 9 March 2014).

Taking up the challenge is a great way to support our Hungry for change campaign. As part of the campaign we have been recommending our lifestyle tips to help you play your part in building a fairer food system for all. Buying food from Fairtrade companies is a fantastic way to do this: it encourages greater support for small-scale farmers like Foncho, ensuring large supermarkets give growers a fair return for their produce.
