Step One: Boycott the United Fruit Company.
Supporting a corporation is the same as supporting their politics. By buying and eating United Fruit Company products, you are supporting the company's policies regarding Latin America. So if you disagree with their business tactics, tell them! Start by boycotting the brand. United Fruit encompasses all Chiquita, Dole, and Fresh Express brands. This includes more than just bananas: pineapples, Dole "fruit cups," avocados and all other products under the brand name are equally corrupt.
P.S. Stop putting banana stickers on your forehead. You look dumb.
Step Two: Write the Company
Make your voice heard. Tell Chiquita directly what you think of their imperialism. Write to the corporate headquarters at:
Chiquita Brands International, Inc.
250 East Fifth Street
Cincinnati, OH 45202 USA
Step Three: Join the Protest
Educating others is extremely important. Raising consciousness about the unethical practices of Chiquita and all associated brands is the first step to change. Using the image below, print out stickers (either print an entire sheet and cut out the ovals, or buy precut stickers and print as directed). Take these stickers to the store and stick them right where they belong: on the corrupt product itself. Think it won't work? Hey, you saw it, didn't you?
