Peru

Until the 90’s Peru did not export bananas which were only grown for the domestic market. In the late 90’s the peruvian banana industry was able to meet the requirement of the organic certification and adapted its practices to meet the international export standards. The local banana industry has been continuously growing since then.

Sullana

Sullana is located in the northwestern part of Peru. Bananas have replaced cotton as the main crop in the region but it also grows grapes and mangos successfully.

Climate

In Sullana the weather is hot with very little rain, which is unusual for a banana producing region. In spite of its very dry climate it is an important farming region thanks to it fertile soils and the water brought by the Chira river from the Andes mountains. Weather
