Giumarra adds premium Colombian pineapple to its tropical line

Giumarra announces it will be working with Bengala Agrícola to offer a 12-month supply of premium-quality golden pineapple grown in Valle de Cauca, Colombia.
 
First shipments will arrive Sep. 4. Fruit will arrive on the East Coast via the Ports of New York and Philadelphia, and on the West Coast via the Port of Long Beach.

“Our grower Bengala is offering the only certified Costa Rican MD2 golden pineapple seed planted in Colombia,” says Tom Richardson, V.P. Global Development for Giumarra. “Our customers can trust the quality will be excellent and deliver a superior eating experience to consumers.”



The pineapples will be available in single-layer cartons of 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 counts. 

“Giumarra Wenatchee is excited to offer this specialty, high-value item to our North American customers every week throughout the year,” says Jason Bushong, Division Manager. “Valle de Cauca’s lower rainfall rate results in consistent pineapple availability year-round.” 

Bengala Agrícola farms 700 hectares, or more than 1,700 acres, of golden pineapples. The grower holds certifications from GlobalGAP, ICA, and BASC (Business Alliance for Secure Commerce).
