Ecuadorian banana growers protest dropping sales and prices

Some 500 banana producers in Ecuador gave away boxes of fruit during protests earlier this week in Guayaquil, as a result of the heavy losses that accumulate due to the effects of the war in Ukraine and the consequent price drops.

In Colombia, the impact has been similar, which is why the leaders of the Colombian banana associations Augura and Asbama are in Europe looking for solutions to the crisis facing the sector due to rising input costs and the challenges posed by Fusarium Race 4 Tropical fungus, among others.

“We have been working in coordination with the National Government and with the different Latin American actors in the chain to turn to European parliamentarians and businessmen (our main market) and find measures that allow us to balance the loads and safeguard the production of the fruit, which is paid a fair price, in addition to the subsistence of the more than 800,000 families that depend on agribusiness in Latin America”, assured the president of Augura, Emerson Aguirre Medina.
