British retailer Marks & Spencer honored Bananito, a Dole banana farm in Limon, Costa Rica, for its sustainability efforts.

Marks & Spencer, a customer of the 2,100-acre farm, presented Westlake Village, Calif.-based Dole Food Co. with the award and a £1,000 ($1,288) prize, according to a news release.

The money will be donated to workers’ associations to help fund family activities, Danilo Roman, general manager of Dole’s Standard Fruit de Costa Rica, said in the release.
