Help Us GROW a Conversation

Banana Smile

Since 2005, GROW has strived to make a difference in communities throughout Mexico and Ecuador. With each purchase of GROW organic bananas, you are helping create new opportunities for those who would not otherwise be able to do so on their own. This year’s GROW Month has been extra special as we celebrated our 10th anniversary of the program. Although GROW month has passed, we hope you will continue celebrating and raising awareness for the rest of 2015.

In honor of our 10th anniversary we have created content to spark fun conversation around bananas and the GROW program:

Help us create more opportunities for workers and communities through your social media channels or in-store POP materials using this shareable content. Share these stories, recipes, ideas, facts and more with the hashtag #GROWTURNS10 to start a conversation and help bring more familiarity to the program. Let your customers know how much they have helped make a difference with each GROW organic banana purchased.

Thank you for being a part of GROW Month! We look forward to spending the next 10 years and beyond with you, helping to make our world a better, more sustainable place.
