The ONE Banana Story
Agroamerica starts operations in Guatemala with a small banana plantation. For several years Agroamerica grew various different types of crops.
Agroamerica is exclusively dedicated to banana production, marketing and exporting.
As a result of the damage caused by Hurricane Mitch, Agroamerica decides to transition a few of their banana plantations and enters the palm oil business.
Agroamerica expands its growing and enters the pineapple business in Costa Rica.
Agroamerica consolidates its position as one of the largest and most efficient banana and pineapple producers in the world, as well as an efficient producer of palm oil in the region.
Agroamerica obtains the Rainforest Alliance, GlobalG.A.P. and BASC certifications. A Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project is approved by the United Nations. The Corporate Social Responsibility program is consolidated and is focused on workers, families and communities.
Having grown its banana business for over 25 years, Agroamerica introduces its new banana company, ONE BANANA. The Better Banana Company. Committed to the environment and community, ONE BANANA is dedicated to growing delicious bananas to be enjoyed all over the world. The company is now expanding to Panama, Ecuador and Peru and is producing organic bananas as well.
