At Asda we sell 14 million bananas a week making it one of our most popular products in store and we pride ourselves on our commitment to our banana farmers who produce over 124,000 tonnes of bananas a year for our customers- that’s enough to fill nearly 8000 double decker buses!
Our colleagues work on the ground with local suppliers in countries such as Costa Rica & Columbia to ensure we pick the best quality bananas day in and day out. We are also active members of the World Banana Forum, who we work with to drive a sustainable future for farmers and workers.
We source all our bananas through IPL our international supplier network, who work closely with producers and growers in Central and South America where they are grown.
IPL have a network of technical teams around the world who carry out quality checks, offer training and advice to farmers and growers and ensure our bananas are ethically and sustainably sourced.Read more
