BanaBay Widens Sourcing Footprint in the Philippines
BanaBay is close to finalising a sourcing agreement with a prominent banana producer in the Philippines to service customer contracts in China and the Middle East.
The owner of 300 farms in the Davao region has over 50 years banana growing experience and is currently being subjected to an audit by BanaBay to ensure the product meets with its strict quality requirements.
The decision to widen BanaBay’s sourcing footprint is driven by the need to supplement supply of bananas produced on its owned Ecuadorian plantations, to meet increased customer demand and keep its promise of consistency of supply.
The Philippines sourced Cavendish variety bananas will be available to customers from the end of 2015.
