OUR STORY

History
We started operations in 2011 with the planting of conventional bananas at Finca La Inmaculada, a small farm located in the Simón Bolívar canton of the Guayas province. Soon, we began to expand with the purchase of the Domenica farm located in El Triunfo and the María del Pilar farm located in Soledad Chica, thus adding a total of 140 conventional hectares. In 2017, we decided to make a new investment, this time in the Santa Elena area, with the purchase of 300 hectares destined for the cultivation of organic bananas, by doing so we were able to diversify and reach new customers and markets.

Who we are?
We are producers and exporters of organic and conventional bananas, we believe that a high quality product can only grow if there is deep social and environmental care.

Our farms are highly technical and are located on the Ecuadorian coast, in the provinces of Guayas and Santa Elena. We currently have more than 350 employees, 340 ha. and a production of more than 960,000 boxes of bananas per year.
