Like all Chiquita bananas, Chiquita organic bananas are produced in a manner that helps promote a sustainable, healthy lifestyle and additionally meet the strict requirements of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Organic Program. As such they are independently certified as 100% organic by world-leading agencies recognized by the USDA.
Before a product can be officially labeled 100% organic, a USDA-approved certifier must inspect the place where the food is grown to ensure that the grower is adhering to all the rules and requirements that meet USDA organic standards. Growers who meet these requirements must then meet our own requirements and standards that qualify their organically grown bananas to be labeled Chiquita!
If you can't find Chiquita organic bananas at your local grocery store, ask the produce manager to stock them.
Serious athletes need to replenish the essential vitamins and minerals, in particular the potassium, that are lost during exercise and performance training. One Chiquita banana can help replenish the potassium, and other vitamins and minerals, lost during one to two hours of intense exercise.
