Bananas (aka Fairtrade volunteers) were seen to be stalking the corridors of County Hall on Friday, 3 February 2017 as they directed groups of primary school children to the second Lancashire Fairtrade schools conference where Liberation supplied their delicious nuts and leaflets for the goody bags.
Liberation followers will already know that the majority of the world’s supply of brazil nuts come from Bolivia…the rest come from Brazil and Peru. At Liberation we buy Fairtrade brazil nuts from our shareholder small-scale brazil nut gatherers who live in the remote Amazon rainforest region of Bolivia. This week our Operations Manager, Angela and Chair of the Board of Directors, Richard have made the long journey to visit the brazil nut gatherer communities. When we say a ‘long journey’, we mean they set off from Heathrow last Saturday and had their first meeting with brazil nut gatherers on Tuesday! Brazil nut gatherers know all about arduous journeys.
