Panama has grown to become one of the fastest growing producers of pineapple in the world, with the country’s fruit having extraordinary internal conditions, including bright red-colored clay soil that contains pH levels of between 5 and 5.5, making it ideal for growing the perfect pineapple. However, Panama’s pineapples are yet to get the exposure they deserve, which is where the efforts of the Caimito Fruits growers alliance have been particularly helpful as reiterated by the Royal Investment Summit Dubai participation.
Caimito Fruits is an alliance of family farms that have been in the business for decades, led by Pepe Benitez, a co-founder of Caimito Fruits and the owner of Finca San José. The relatively new yet prominent coalition has continued to push boundaries, specializing in premium fruit sent by air to niche markets all over Europe, shipping 30,000 kilos of pineapple every week to different parts of the world.
The Royal Investment Summit Dubai organized by the Sheikh Abdulaziz Bin Duaij Bin Khalifa Al Khalifa will feature an exclusive group of royalty, family, and friends and give Caimito Fruits an opportunity for them to taste the delicious Panamanian fruit. Caimito Fruits will be delivering the MD2-Variety, super Sweet Golden Pineapples, recognized as one of the best quality pineapples in the world, to attendees of the event.
The Caimito Fruits brand is supported by ProPanama, the Export and Investment Promotion Authority of the Panamanian government, helping to bring the idea to fruition.
