Germans aim to sell bananas from Honduras to Russia

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

A delegation of German investors is in Honduras closing business deals with small and medium banana producers in order to enter the Russian market.

"This opportunity will not only generate foreign exchange, but the opening to an important market", said the Undersecretary of Agriculture, Juan Carlos Ordóñez.

Banana sales abroad accounted for 62 percent of total Honduran agricultural sales and rose from $335 million in 2010 to $397 million dollars last year.
