Island of St Lucia revives banana exports to UK

More than 2,000 boxes of bananas have been shipped to the United Kingdom from Saint Lucia recently. Saint Lucia has not exported bananas to Europe for some time after UK suppliers raised concerns regarding the quality of the fruit being shipped. However, Agriculture Minister Alfred Prospere claims that issue has been ironed out.

In November, Minister Prospere led a delegation to the UK to discuss the situation with stakeholders and find new markets for Saint Lucian farmers. The Minister affirmed that the Agriculture Ministry is focused on securing existing banana markets and expanding into new regional and international markets and that local farmers must do their best.
