Costa Rica buoys banana prospects
This banana season is similar to last year in terms of supply, but peak demand started sooner. Dole bananas are sourced from Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Colombia and Peru and the company continues to expand its operations by adding new farms and production areas.
This year, Dole says Costa Rica has consistent, stable supply. Some adverse weather Guatemala, Honduras and Colombia have caused some volume reductions there.
