Organics Unlimited focuses on GROW

The emphasis is on education for San Diego-based Organics Unlimited, a grower and distributor of organic bananas from Mexico and Ecuador.

“Our focus at Organics Unlimited this year is on educating buyers, retailers and, ultimately, consumers about our fairly traded GROW (Giving Resources and Opportunities to Workers) label bananas and everything that goes into growing a sustainable, organic banana,” said Mayra Velazquez de León, president and CEO.

GROW, which supports a network of small growers in Mexico, gives back to the organic banana growing regions through education and health care programs as well as disaster relief, she said.

GROW by Organics Unlimited is preparing for its own consumer campaign, GROW Month, which will be celebrated in September.
