This week on The Farm Report, host Erin Fairbanks talks with Nicole Vitello, Banana Coordinator at Equal Exchange. On this episode, Nicole talks about the food and fair trade industry, and how large corporations are easily able to control the market, leaving the consumer with less choices, the farmer with less profit, and an upbringing of unnatural products. This has been an ongoing issue especially within the world of avocados, which have risen in demand throughout the United States. Learn more about the behind the scenes of avocado production, from their regulations and inspections, to their arrival at your local market on today’s episode of The Farm Report! This program has been sponsored by Cain Vainyard & Winery

“You’re starting to see better avocados out there. Volume is driving these imports, and you can [now] basically get fresher supply continually.” [30:10]
