Celebrating Chiquita Banana Day on April 15[th]

Chiquita is celebrating Banana Day in fabulous style this year with a whole host of exciting flash challenges, games and prizes in our biggest-ever giveaway. With much of the world currently in need of distractions we have these entertaining, fun and creative activities that will provide a happy diversion during your time at home.

April 15thChiquita Banana Day – is the perfect time to celebrate our favorite fruit in style. We’d like to go bananas on this very special day! What could be better during its very own celebration than to sample the quality and delicious taste of a Chiquita banana? Every lovely yellow skin protects a mouth-watering interior – a fruit that’s crammed full of vitamins (especially vitamins C and B6), minerals (potassium and magnesium in particular) and other important nutrients, as well as fibre and resistant starch.

Add to these amazing benefits the great, creamy taste of the Chiquita banana, and maintaining health and energy levels is – well, a piece of banana cake, you might say. Wrapped in its own packaging, the Chiquita banana is a hit for a quick and convenient snack. It’s all very much worth cheering for!

People normally mark Banana Day with a whole range of excellent (sometimes crazy) fruit-based fun, from dressing as bananas to making up new banana-based treats. Today, while we’re all doing our best in trying circumstances, we felt Chiquita should mark this very special day with some entertainment for everyone, from kids upwards.

The flash challenges will start out small and easy, and the difficulty will increase each day. Follow the clues on Instagram from the 10th April. Get ready to use your brain, find your creative side and have fun with the challenges across the week. These exciting Chiquita challenges will help to keep the whole family amused, and the rewards will be extra special. Giveaways will include powerbanks, toasters, sunglasses, clothes, pens and much more!

Everything may feel a little strange right now, but while we’re all at home what could be better than some really excellent brain-teasers and our best-ever rewards to help pass the time?

About Us

Chiquita is the leading distributor of bananas in the United States. Our passion for doing well and giving back.We want Chiquita to be the banana of choice in every market we are in, providing our customers with the highest quality product and service. We want to create consistent value for the Chiquita Brand, our customers, suppliers, associates and the community whilst respecting the environment. We want to do so in the spirit of doing well and giving back, with respect for the environment and everyone involved in our business. Bananas love hot, humid climates. Chiquita bananas are grown primarily in the lowland areas of Latin America. Banana farms are labor intensive and our produce relies being in a temperature-controlled environment from the farms at which bananas are harvested all the way to a local grocery store, a journey that can cover thousands of miles. We asked ourselves how we could make each step in that journey an environmentally responsible one. Chiquita works under better than industry standard agricultural work practices for business, the environment, employees and the local communities. Chiquita was the pioneer promoting good farming practices in the 1990s to protect the environment and support farming communities. To guarantee we were following the strict environmental and social standards we had auditors and independent experts assessing our farms every year while having full access to all workplaces, documents and employees.
