The banana is the world’s fourth most important food crop after rice, wheat and maize. more than 10 billion of our bananas are eaten every year. More than a third of these bananas come from our owned farms, while we enter into contracts to purchase the rest from other Latin American producers who meet our environmental and social requirements.
