Lonergan said the company’s attention to overall cost cutting, dubbed “Project Evolution,” includes improving logistics and efficiencies in growing operations the company controls. He said Chiquita owns or leases about 40% of the land that produces its bananas.

“Our competitor controls a little more than 50% of theirs,” he said, adding that Chiquita will continue to strategically buy and lease more land as prime lots become available.

this fabulous news--maybe the plant can begin operating 6 days a week--Taylor Farms will inherit less dead meat if Fresh Express Operation (Chiquita)can make the slightest profit

Things are NOT what they seem. The numbers have been tampered with to result in a profit on this side (FEX) of the business and otherwise show investors that a turnaround exist. Smoke and mirrors my friends. That is all.
