In a few weeks, GROW by Organics Unlimited will be kicking off GROW month and we need your help! Every September, we promote GROW and take the opportunity to educate and inspire our consumers to make a difference through their GROW purchases. What does this mean for you? Please start thinking about your merchandising displays and about other ways you can help. We need stores that are willing to host community events such as banana tasting, kid’s events, etc. We also need stores that are ok with live footage being shot inside the store by news crews. If you want to help us, please send us an email!
With each box of GROW bananas sold, a portion of the proceeds go into the GROW Fund. These donations are managed and distributed by the International Community Foundation. Project Amigo in Mexico and Children International in Ecuador are two organizations where GROW has helped build better communities and have changed the lives of many. With the financial support they receive from the GROW label, Project Amigo is able to provide communities with vision clinics, dental clinics, literacy and educational programs. These services are vital to the community and quite successful. Over 90% of the students that are a part of the Project Amigo scholarship program are attending the university and many have graduated to become very successful. Some of those success stories have continued to be a part of their community and have helped the current students in their health and education.
Please consider helping us in helping our communities! With your support in purchasing GROW bananas or creating visual appealing merchandising displays with GROW bananas, together we can make a difference in the banana growing communities.
For more information on how you can help support please visit our GROW website.

Last week Organics Unlimited participated in the Organic Produce Summit 2017. Check out the pictures below! (more…)
This week, Organics Unlimited showcased its fresh organic bananas at Organic Produce Summit in Monterey, California. Joining Organics Unlimited were the over 900 people in attendance, including growers, distributors, processors and nearly 200 retailers from over 70 different buying organizations.
The show kicked off with an opening reception which allowed participants to meet, greet and share knowledge and ideas on the produce industry. The next day, participants were invited to attend a series of educational sessions where keynote speakers covered a wide range of topics related to the booming organic produce category. The day culminated with the exhibition floor, where a wide selection of organic fresh produce companies proudly displayed their produce.
Organics Unlimited was pleased to not only showcase high-quality, organic bananas, but also share a bit about what makes them a truly unique company; like the sustainable farming practices that benefit the environment and the GROW by Organics Unlimited program that helps entire communities lead a healthier life.
It was wonderful to be able to greet new friends, see old acquaintances, share knowledge and meet future customers. If you were able to go to Organic Produce Summit and we missed saying hi to you, please feel free to reach out to us. We can’t wait to see everyone again next year.
