FEDCO is committed to uplift the socio-economic condition of its member cooperatives and the community, by exporting best quality bananas and other agricultural products worldwide.
Their direct partnership to international buyers eliminates third party marketing channels thus offering a competitive price to consumers. With these, local banana growers earn bigger profit enabling them to operate independently.
FEDCO was formulated with an aim to empower small banana growers in Region XI. FEDCO is the umbrella organization of banana growers’ cooperatives composed of farmers who are Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries operating in Davao City and the provinces of Davao Del Norte, Davao Del Sur and Compostella Valley.
FEDCO supervises the member banana cooperatives to make them capable to directly deal with foreign buyers. FEDCO serves as an effective marketing arm of the banana growers which opened direct international buyers to small players in the industry. Trade mission and direct contacts with global fruit buyers by FEDCO have developed direct market linkages with buyers in Japan, China, Korea and the Middle East. With this, banana cooperatives directly negotiate to the buyer. Unnecessary costs were cut down which enables the banana growers to sell their products in a very competitive price. Banana growers can now supply high quality bananas at a cheaper price directly to international consumers - beneficial to both the banana growers and the consumers.
