Turbana sourcing from Colombia
Coral Gables, Fla.-based Turbana Corp., this year started shipping Colombia-grown pineapples, said Alan Dolezal, vice president of sales.
The Colombian fruit supplements Turbana’s supplies from Costa Rica and Panama. About 99% of Turbana’s bananas are grown in Colombia.
Turbana, in partnership with Dublin, Ireland-based Fyffes, this year plans to ship a larger volume of pineapples to the West Coast. Fyffes is a part-owner of Turbana.
