Ecuador: San Francsico S.A.E.P.R enters 12th year of pineapple cultivation

From Santo Domingo, Ecuador, which calls itself the middle of the world, San Francsico S.A.E.P.R. has been growing pineapples since the year 2000. Now in their 12th year of operation, they continue to take advantage of their excellent growing conditions to produce quality fruit.

"Our pineapples have a unique flavor," said Ana María Hidalgo, general manager of San Francsico. "The MD2 Golden Sweet has the perfect balance of sweetness and acidity; it's sweeter and less acidic than other varieties." She credited the growing region, along with the tropical climate and well-honed growing practices, as a big reason for the quality of their fruit.

A large part of their growing process involves adhering to strict labor regulations that ensure the safety of their workforce, and their contributions to the communities around their growing operations ensure that they not only provide quality fruit, but they do so in a positive way. Adherence to Global GAP standards and an Integrated Pest Management approach also means they guarantee the safety of their pineapples while maintaining the sustainability of their operation for years to come.

They currently ship to Italy, Spain, the United States, Chile, Argentina and Uruguay through the Transnational Dole label and through the wholesaler Viva Verde.
