The Banana Supply Chain And The Movement To Change It
The interactive web documentary Beyond the Seal follows bananas from the fields of Ecuador to the U.S. supermarket and investigates a growing Fair Trade movement for the fruit.
Dan Koeppel, author of Bananas: The Fate of the Fruit That Changed the World and Nicole Vitello, president at Fair Trade banana importer Oké USA Fruit Company, are both featured in the documentary.
They join us to talk about the farmers, activists and business leaders who are working to change the U.S. banana industry.
Beyond The Seal was produced by Leah Varjacques and WBEZ intern Katherine Nagasawa.
