the chiquita difference
Our more than 100 years history shows a consistent commitment to excellence that remains even more meaningful than ever today. 1899 saw the birth of the United Fruit Company from which Chiquita originates. In 1990, the company was renamed Chiquita Brands International but Miss Chiquita had been first introduced in 1944 and the iconic Chiquita Blue Sticker first appeared on a banana in 1963. Today, Chiquita is the world's most loved banana brand.
Chiquita is a leading global company with 20,000 employees across 30 countries. We are passionate about our nutritious, high-quality, energy-rich and value-added bananas. Chiquita's products are sold in nearly 70 countries around the world. Chiquita Brands International grows, procures, markets and sells bananas and other fresh fruits under the Chiquita brand and other names.
We are passionate about upholding the values which are at the very core of the company - integrity, respect, opportunity and responsibility. Our values serve as an ethical compass that provide us with guidance and direction - both for the conduct of our company, as well as for the behaviour of each employee.
Quality is in our DNA, from seed to shelf. Part of the Chiquita difference is our company wide focus on providing premium quality products for our consumers and quality services for our business partners. Our iconic Blue Sticker is the symbol of this quality since 1963.
