The Rainforest Alliance
Rainforest Alliance Certification
Since 1992, Chiquita, the company that invented the banana industry, has been helping to lead its transformation, one farm at a time.

It's only natural that we operate responsibly in the communities where we live and work. That's why our banana farms are Rainforest Alliance Certified™, meaning they meet the rigorous standards of the Sustainable Agriculture Network, a coalition of environmental groups in eight tropical nations.

The Rainforest Alliance is an international, non-profit, environmental organization. Its mission is to protect ecosystems and the people and wildlife that depend on them. Since voluntarily joining the Rainforest Alliance's Better Banana Project 20 years ago, 100% of our banana plantations have been modified to conserve wildlife habitats and natural resources, manage agrichemicals responsibly and promote worker welfare and community well-being.

Chiquita is the only global banana company to have met the strict standards for Rainforest Alliance certification for 100% of our farms.
