Dole Organic Program actually gives you the ability to find out which farm grew your produce. Give it a try. Type in the farm number on this banana:
In the heart of La Guajira desert with a great view of the snowed peaks of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Dole Colombia operates a farm called Don Pedro. This farm has over 310 hectares of organic bananas and was established in 2005. This farm is currently certified under EU and NOP organic rules, ISO 14000 and SA 8000. Don Pedro promises to be one of the best producing organic banana farms in Latin America.Some nice pictures too:
Now I wonder. If fast-food restaurants offered something similar, would the pictures be of a warehouse filled with barrels of artificial flavorings and trans-fat?
