Coliman is set to be one of the first producers to export Mexican bananas into China as part of a new strategic alliance with Golden Aurora Fresh Fruit Trading. The first shipment is due to arrive in Shanghai mid-February, marking the beginning of what is hoped to be a long-term relationship.
As part of the strategic alliance Golden Aurora will facilitate the ripening process, market, and efficiently distribute Coliman bananas to wholesalers and retailers across China.
Coliman Mexico: A focus on sustainability
For Coliman, sustainability is at the heart of all that they do. Both organic and Fairtrade certified, Coliman follows strict agricultural practices that help foster, restore and maintain a healthy ecological balance of the soil and land.
To date, educational, health, community and environmental initiatives funded by Fairtrade premiums have benefited thousands of collaborators in and around the region of Colima.
“Coliman's commitment to organic farming comes from the heart and a core belief that the impact we all have on others and our planet is of the utmost importance" says a Coliman representative.
Continuous investment in facilities, infrastructure and integrated supply chains puts Coliman as one of Latin America's leading producers worldwide.
With China’s organic food market estimated to reach more than USD 13 Billion by the end of the year 2024, it is also hoped that alongside Golden Aurora, Coliman can begin exporting organics alongside conventional bananas later in the year.
