Grupo Hualtaco SAC, a private company founded in Peru in 2001, exports exceptional bananas that are produced organically in socially responsible contexts.

In October 2002, Grupo Hualtaco exported Peru’s first container of fairtrade organic bananas with the FLO label. Over the years, the company has exported an increasing number of bananas and currently collaborates with 800 farmers.

Grupo Hualtaco exports between 9 and 15 containers a week to markets in Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, Holland and Austria. The company is Peru’s third largest banana exporter, accounting for 14% of this product’s export value.

Organic banana production takes place in the Chira Valley (Piura) and neighbouring areas on the Northern Coast of Peru. This region has an optimum climate that allows the production of excellent quality bananas year-round.
