Happy Banana Lover Day!

As the world’s leading banana company, Chiquita is proudly celebrating the humble banana – a fruit that’s been on kitchen counters for more than 100 years. What was originally thought as an exotic fruit quickly became a household staple as Chiquita educated consumers on this versatile and healthy snack that can be eaten raw, dried, cooked or baked in a variety of ways. Chiquita educated consumers on the nutritional benefits of bananas through its famous jingle and launched several campaigns highlighting the company’s mission, showcasing the fun side of healthy living.

Though taste preferences and dietary needs may have changed since the banana was first introduced, the common elements remain the same –  superior taste, great quality, and positive health attributes. Chiquita has expanded the perception of bananas – that has been historically considered a grab-and-go snack – and strives to promote them with innovative healthy recipes – all starring our beloved banana!
