Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms
We offer our Members a premium selection of fresh fruits, including responsibly grown bananas, grapes, kiwi and pineapple* from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms, ensuring a better tomorrow for everyone—the workers, the wildlife and you.
Rainforest Alliance Certified farms meet comprehensive standards for sustainable agriculture that protect forests, waterways, wildlife habitats and the rights and well being of workers, their families and their communities.
* List of fruits depends on availability and season—look for the Rainforest Alliance Certified green frog seal.
Fair Trade Certified™ fresh produce
We also work with Fair Trade USA—which helps farmers in developing countries get a fair price for their harvest so they eat better, keep their kids in school and invest in their future. Fair Trade certification also ensures that sustainable farming techniques are used to protect community health, wildlife, rivers and forests.
Every Fair Trade Certified purchase offers you the best of both worlds—a chance to savor the healthiest, most flavorful produce while helping to enrich the lives of those struggling in poverty. Giving back doesn’t get much simpler than that. Look for products with the Fair Trade Certified Seals in your local Sam's Club.
