Community Involvement
We’re out to make the world a better place for all of us
For more than 100 years, Chiquita has been committed to improving the communities where we do business. Our Core Values of Integrity, Respect, Opportunity and Responsibility serve as the basis of our business performance and guide our everyday activities, including our giving programs.

At Chiquita, we focus our involvement on programs and organizations that improve world nutrition and support the health and well-being of the communities where our employees live and work. We also provide assistance for humanitarian aid and recovery efforts following major disasters.

Donations & Grants
Reaching out with our time and resources
Whether it’s product donations to charitable fundraising events or corporate grants for large community projects, Chiquita is involved in helping to reach out to the community in many different ways.

Volunteerism & Gift Matching
Community involvement begins with our employees
Our employees are our greatest ambassadors in the community, and a culture of caring is deeply embedded in each and every one of our people. We not only encourage them to play their part in supporting the community, but we also assist them in their worthwhile efforts.

Chiquita employees volunteer for a variety of causes in their local communities that help promote health and wellness. You might even see Miss Chiquita at an event in your neighborhood.
