When someone mentions Chiquita, you probably think just of bananas - but there is so much more to Chiquita than just bananas. In fact, Chiquita's basket overflows with a huge selection of delicious fruit such as pineapples, mango, papaya, and passion fruit. The company also distributes and markets high-quality fresh and value-added produce including natural fruit ingredients, healthy snacks and nutritious blends of convenient green salads. The company markets its products under the Chiquita® and Fresh Express® premium brands and other related trademarks. 

Woven deep into the fabric of the company is a commitment to not only lead the industry forward in a sustainable way, but to improve the lives of the Chiquita family and those in the communities in which we work and live. 

Chiquita is truly a global company. Headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, there are approximately 20,000 employees and operations in nearly 70 countries worldwide.
