Because we are proud of being able to grow horticultural products characterized by their social and environmental commitment. As a leading exporting country, we must achieve the growing high quality standards. These are required by our international buyers. The latter, as well as the opinions of the civil society have led to a bigger consciousness of our agricultural industry. An example of this is the banana sector, where the trade and environmental regulations are fostering its more sustainable development.
In this regard our farmers are deploying efforts to achieve during each day´s production the most sustainable farming methods. Furthermore, the empowerment of the most vulnerable stakeholders in the whole supply chain stands as our main commitment to be achieved in the field . Some of what we can see in our BananitaBlog is a reflection of this: a few projects that show that it is feasible to do business in a different and ethical way. Discover them ➡️ here.

Let’s hope we´re up to it and being capable of transmitting the excellence of the Ecuadorian bananas 🙂 .
