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
