CAMPAIGNERS are urging the Government to stop supermarkets selling bananas at “scandalously low prices”.

Members of Colchester and Wivenhoe Fairtrade Town Group are urging shoppers to sign the group’s petition, which will be sent to Business Secretary, Vince Cable.

The group says while the low prices may be good for the consumer, they bad for the farmer, who cannot make enough money to feed a family.

On Saturday, more than 50 shoppers penned their support for the campaign in just 90 minutes at the Co-op, in The Avenue, Wivenhoe.
