Bending the rules: The Sweeter Banana Co-operative
Carnarvon in Western Australia is home to a group of banana growers whose remarkable co-operation has been forged out of a history of natural disasters and market challenges. The remote WA coast may be the last place you’d imagine finding a group of successful family farmers who changed the way we think about buying bananas. Despite the cyclones and the geographic isolation, Sweeter Banana has not only pioneered the lunchbox banana market, it has remained profitable by sticking together and thinking differently.
Renowned agricultural journalist and host Pete Lewis talks to Doriana Mangili, Business Manager of The Sweeter Banana Cooperative.
