The Chiquita Value


Values are necessary for every company to have. When it comes to Chiquita banana they continue to keep their values up high. Chiquita was the first company to brand a banana in 1944 which was introduced as a band at first. It later transformed in 1963 into a blue sticker with Miss Chiquita on it. The blue sticker stands for more than just Chiquita banana. It stands for high-quality produce, innovation, and simply caring about our company and customers. The high-quality produce is because the time and money they spend on their fresh bananas. They have their produce coming from farms in Costa Rica that are nationally approved for the quality of work being done there. Also on their transportation ways are done with care with refrigerators to guaranteed freshness. Chiquita is innovative, they’ve always been the front runners on not just bananas but also caring about their employees and customers. The initiative with Disney called Improve World Nutrition they are taking steps to improve world health. Their Fresh Rinse and extended-shelf-life system are both innovative efforts that Chiquita has been taking their whole company’s life.  Another innovation they’ve made is the Mundimar facility which is a biodigester system in Costa Rica.
