WHO WE ARE

Chiquita Brands International grows, procures, markets, and sells bananas and other fresh fruits under the Chiquita name and third parties. Bananas account for about 85% of Chiquita's sales. Its other offerings include pineapples and freight services. Chiquita's products are sold in nearly 70 countries, however mainly in North America and Europe. In 2015, a joint venture formed by agribusiness Grupo Cutrale and J. Safra Group acquired Chiquita which is now privately-owned with its principal offices in Rolle, Switzerland and Fort Lauderdale, North America.

Our core values of integrity, respect, opportunity and responsibility form the basis of our business performance and guide our everyday activities, including our giving programs. As part of our core values, Chiquita maintains a solid commitment to conducting its business ethically, morally and in accordance with the law.

While Chiquita is over 100 years old, the heart of the company is fresh. Today, Chiquita leads with a reinvigorated vision. Our new leadership is heavily investing in our foundation to better support your business goals through sustainable growth from farm rejuvenation, strengthening our commercial supplier base, improving packing plants, taking control of our logistics and shipping to re-launching into a new brand positioning.
