At Fresh Fruit, it’s our mission to produce high-quality products. At the moment, we have three plantations in the Dominican Republic, an area specifically chosen for offering the micro-climate needed to grow organic bananas. Between them, these plantations account for more than 280 hectares dedicated to growing organic bananas. And we plan on expanding our production even further. After beginning from scratch in 2015, we have now built a unique, state-of-the-art plantation in Guayubin. We named it Paradise Produce.
Filled with the latest technology, this plantation is used to educate and train our farmers. Examples include the use of aerial cableways, solar panels, special organic fertilisers and the use modern irrigation systems. It also allows us to demonstrate practices, such as the injection of fertilisers, soil amendments and water-soluble products into the irrigation system (fertigation), that positively affect profitability and product quality. We hope Paradise Produce will convince them to embrace our organic farming methods.
