Chiquita Brands International History

Chiquita Brands International began when ship captain Lorenzo Dow Baker purchased 160 bunches of bananas in Jamaica in 1870 and resold them in New Jersey at a profit. In 1878 Baker partnered with Central American railroad developer Minor C. Kieth to form the Boston Fruit Company.

In 1899 the United Fruit Company was formed by the merger of Boston Fruit Company and other fruit exporting companies also controlled by Kieth.

By 1930 the company was using refrigeration during open sea transport and had a fleet of 95 ships.

By 1955 Chiquita was a registered trademark and the company was processing 2.7 billion pounds of  fruit per year.

In 1990 United Fruit Company changed its name to Chiquita Brands International.

Today Chiquita grows, produces, markets, and sells bananas, melons, tomatoes, grapes, apples, pineapples, and whole citrus fruits, as well as packaged fresh items, processed fruit ingredients, and juices. The company’s products are sold in 70 countries worldwide.

I am a retired UFC/Chiquita executive. I was Vice President of Worldwide Purchase Fruit Operations in charge of operations in the Philippines, Ecuador, Colombia, Costa Rica and Jamaica. We prided ourselves to bring top quality fruit to our markets in North America, Europe and Japan. I am appalled what I now see in the Publix supermarkets. For several months now Chiquita is no longer a premium fruit. It is bruised from poor handling along the supply chain. In turn, Winn Dixie’s Dole brand bananas are spotless and much better ripened. It hurts me to see this. Chiquita clearly lacks hands-on management in the field and in the handling. I worked hard to motivate everyone to practice TLC with great results. You need help. Let me know. Banana juice continues running in our veins.

Mr. Schulz

I am a student at the University of Texas at Austin and as part of my cultural anthropology class, I am subject to research Chiquita Brands International, as well, as conduct an interview in regards to the company.

Your voice and input as a retired executive of Chiquita is invaluable and would greatly influence the direction in which my research goes on.

If you are interested in contacting me, my email is hectorrivascaban@ Feel free to contact me at any time. Have a wonderful day!
