Dominican banana exports to Europe jump 25%

The country’s leading banana producers announced a 25% jump in exports to Europe to more than 58 million dollars in the first half and expect to top US$160 million in 2010. Last year producers exported to Europe 280,000 metric tons of bananas and expect to reach more than 300,000 by year end.During a meeting with Agriculture minister Salvador Jiménez, banana farmers said the sector has become the “free zone” of the Northwest Line with more than 15,000 jobs in the productive process and is now the country’s leading currency producer among agribusinesses. Luis Bonilla, a Northwest Valverde province banana producer for almost 20 years, said the country will make more than 160 million dollars from banana exports by year end. He said every week growers are exporting more than 350 boxes of bananas to the European market, which he affirms are the main buyers.  “The banana sector’s perspective is very good, very encouraging; we’re going through one on the best moments regarding banana exports and production.”
