Meet the All Good family...
1. Wilson Sanchez grows All Good Bananas
on his small organic banana farm in the
rainforest high in the Andean mountains.
He doesn’t use nasty chemicals on his
bananas, keeping the land green and the
water clean and attracting lots of
wildlife. It’s a banana paradise.
2. Wilson Jnr, is able to
do the things boys should
do – like going to school
and playing soccer!
Child workers are a no-no.
3. Maria Tacuri is a doctor at
the El Guabo Cooperative
Medical Centre funded by
Fairtrade*. Visits are free
for El Guabo members, to make sure all the
families get easy access to good health care.
4. José the donkey is a
bananero (banana worker).
When the bananas are picked
and packed in boxes, José
helps carry them down the
steep rainforest terrain. Sustainable
transport at its best!
5. Wilson’s oldest daughter, Kelly,
is studying civil engineering at the
University of Machala. Special college
scholarships are funded by Fairtrade*.
6. Julia Flores is a Year 2
teacher at 5th De April School.
Around a quarter of the children
at this small school are from
El Guabo families. They receive special
packs - books, stationery and bags*.
7. Napoleon the truck driver
carries the precious boxes of
bananas from Wilson’s farm to the
El Guabo depot where they are packed
into containers to be shipped to
8. Norma Porras
is a banana nana with 4
children and 10 grandchildren. Norma and
her husband Angel have owned their family
farm for over 45 years, taking the reigns from
her brothers and father. Thanks to Fairtrade
they have been guaranteed a secure income
and future for the whole family. Nice one Norma.
9. Pedro and Graciella grow Fairtrade
bananas on their family finca (farm),
La Voluntad. Since joining
El Guabo they now have the
security of a fair and stable
price. That makes them smile a lot.
10. Wilson, Pedro and Graciella are part
of the El Guabo Cooperative of Small
Banana Farmers along with over 120
other small farmers. During the past
4 years, Kiwis have contributed
over $500,000 in extra funding
for special projects*, in addition
to the fair price we pay for each box.
11. The Captain makes sure the bananas
travel safely from Ecuador to New Zealand.
It takes three weeks on a container ship and
covers 12,638 kilometers of water.
12. At All Good we get bananas
off the boat, make sure they’re
just the right shade of yellow and send
them out around the country. We’re a small
100% Kiwi owned business and proud
to be able to bring you the best
quality Fairtrade bananas.
13. You can find All Good
Bananas in local stores
around the country, at New World,
PAK’nSAVE and Four Square and a
whole host of independent grocers.

Pt Chev Primary Fairtrade class and raises
money each year for the 5th de April School.

supermarket to stock more Fairtrade products
and made an award-winning Fairtrade movie.
Keren’s a Fairtrade superhero.
16. Olly Wilkinson from Lower Hutt
loves banana smoothies. As well
as tasting yum, Olly knows that by
choosing Fairtrade bananas he’s
helping kids just like him on the other
side of the world. It’s amazing what a
banana can do.
