Cooperative sells only 12 percent of banana boxes in Panama

The firm which bought bananas is the US based Latin Fruit Co. for 2,7 million dollars. The first shipping will be at the second week of April declared the BAISA manager, Abelardo Carles.
From splits and smoothies to breads and pies, bananas have become an international food staple. But growing this "fruit of wise men," as it was dubbed by famed botanist Carl Linnaeus, has become one of the worst activities for environmental health.
The name of the company that will invest in reactivating Coosemupar's banana plantations will be known before December.
Although not yet reaching the numbers of 2008, exports in 2010 will exceed 20% of those in 2009 and are expected to continue to improve in 2011.
Government authorities have announced the sale of 5,600 hectares of banana plantations in Baru to a consortium of Panamanian investors.
