Current Event - Everyone's going Bananas for Bananas.

Everyone's going Bananas for Bananas

Created on August 28, 2015

A couple of weeks ago, a cargo ship bringing banana's down from Ecuador broke down.  Supermarkets and Grocers are warning of a short-lived shortage of Bananas. 

Customer's might have to face up to for 4 days without any bananas.  A Back up boat should arrive the 28th August but they still need to have a week to ripen.

The All good banana company who run a business supplying fair trade bananas, have said that since they opened 5 years ago this is the first time they've had to manage a shortage like this.  However because of the shortage, most wholesalers will be slowing down the ripening schedule of their bananas.   

Which will hopefully ensure that some bananas will be available each day during the shortage.


I love banana smoothie's so I hope the shortage is not for to long.
