Quon said demand for Fair Trade items is higher among consumers in the Northeast, West, Mid-Atlantic and Mountain regions, compared to the Midwest. He also said that while Divemex’s Fair Trade program has thrived with high-end retailers who cater to socially-minded consumers, interest also is growing at club stores and mainstream retail stores.

Oppenheimer expects its volume of organic bell peppers to increase by as much as 30% this season, which runs from January through May, Quon said.
