Banabay puts on a show

BanaBay has been demonstrating its commitment as an ethical business and one that puts people at the heart of the operation with its Christmas initiative to support poorer communities in Ecuador.

Each year the banana grower, through its plantation’s charitable trust, selects a local neighbourhood where there are plenty of children and organises a special treat to celebrate the joy of Christmas.

In December 2014, 80 children and their parents in a town based just outside Machala in El Oro province where BanaBay has its banana plantations, enjoyed food, gifts, surprises, clowns and a magic show, courtesy of the company.

Danilo Serrano, Plantation Director for BanaBay said: “It is an awesome event which we have been running for the last 15 years. It is important to us as a family run business to reach out to communities around our plantations. Everyone at BanaBay takes part in the fun and, as for the kids, all of them were smiling after the event.”
