Tropical fruit grower adds Oro pineapples to product line up

Kapi Kapi Growers, a grower and distributor of pineapples and bananas, meets retail and foodservice demand with the addition of its new Oro pineapple.

This new product will be offered alongside Kapi Kapi’s traditional and Crownless pineapple varieties as well as its premium quality bananas. Derived from the Spanish word for gold, these pineapples feature a beautiful, high-shell color to catch shoppers’ attention at retail stores.

“Our Oro pineapples are especially sought after for their naturally vibrant golden color, which makes easy and great merchandising displays for retailers,” said Kapi Kapi business development manager, Doug Bakker. “Likewise, our Crownless Pineapples cut down on food waste as well as prep in the kitchen, making it ideal for most foodservice and in-store cutting operations.”

The Crownless Pineapples mirror their name without the top leaves, which help produce less waste while yielding more product per case.
Since its founding in 1987, Kapi Kapi has been a supplier of high-quality pineapples and bananas. With expansive growing regions across Costa Rica and a continued commitment to farming innovation and sustainability, the brand can provide a steady year-round supply of pineapple and bananas to more than 25 countries around the world.

“The Oro pineapples are carefully selected after maturing naturally on the plant,” said Kapi Kapi director, Sofia Acon. “New consumers are loving the sweetness and the vibrant color of these pineapples and we are excited to continue to grow this new category.”
