Costa Rica banana industry thwarted by low prices and TR4 fungus alerts

The Costa Rica banana industry is on high alert due to the low prices that European supermarkets are offering, coupled with the presence of the tropical fusarium fungus race 4. Apart from this, general manager of the National Banana Corporation (Corbana), Jorge Sauma, has also highlighted the importance of the fact that a block of Latin American countries made up of Ecuador, Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, the Dominican Republic and Costa Rica, has established in recent days a joint position to demand fair prices for the fruit.

The businessman criticized this position of the supermarkets, as he considers that the Costa Rican product has a high added value, since all the farms in the country have environmental certifications, use 100% recycled plastic and have reduced the use of water in the plants by 60%.
