Chiquita bananas: the hero fruit!

When you need a healthy snack, quite simply, Chiquita bananas are the best. We like to think of our humble banana as a true hero – peel back that lovely yellow skin and underneath you will find genuinely super amounts of important vitamins and minerals, packed into a sweet, delicious fruit. You’ll find that a Chiquita banana offers superior taste and quality that you wont forget.

The best thing about Chiquita bananas is that there’s no wrong way to eat them. Because they come in their own tough, handy packaging, there’s nothing simpler than grabbing a banana when you go out for exercise, to work or to school. We take such care in growing our bananas that they receive the special blue Chiquita sticker that we all know and love. It is this love and care that makes the Chiquita banana quality and taste stand out above the rest.

Amazingly, Chiquita bananas are not only the tastiest of the bunch, they’re also good for you. Bananas are one of the best fruit sources of “happy” vitamin B6, and are also a good source of vitamin C. The manganese in bananas is great for your skin, and their generous helping of potassium is good for heart health and blood pressure. Bananas can aid digestion and help beat gastrointestinal issues thanks to a helpful amount of soluble fibre, and their natural sugars provide a long-lasting boost of energy. Best of all, they don’t contain any fats or cholesterol.

A Chiquita banana will give you so much more than you might think. Underneath the Chiquita banana’s skin is a truly amazing fruit – a hero of your shopping!

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.
