Still from Fairtrade Foundation How Fairtrade helps banana farmers video

This Fairtrade Fortnight, you're invited to meet the people who grow our food – and discover why programmes like Fairtrade are so important.

In this colourful video, Colombian banana farmer Foncho explains how the choices we make in the supermarket can make a real difference to people.

As he puts it: "To my friends in Europe, remember that when you buy a Fairtrade banana you don't just support the banana producer. You support and contribute to a whole community of producers, families and children who live in the region."
