Fruits

PVS International entered the banana business in Ecuador in 2017 with the aim of offering premium quality fruit to our customers worldwide. We have forged long-term relationships with producers and customers, and leveraged our extensive shipping contacts in order to secure competitive freights to ensure that the fruit arrives in the best condition.

Process:

    • Banana bunches are harvested and transported to the packing plant on rails

    • Quality inspectors measure thickness and length, and check for softness, bugs, marks and other issues

    • Banana hands are cut, visually classified, and put in a pool for cleaning

    • Another inspection is carried out, defects are cut out, and the bananas go into another pool

    • The last step is the fumigation before the labelling, packing, and loading
