For UK importer Exotifruit and Mexican lime producer Inverafrut, the month of May sparks the beginning of a busy season.
Coliman Allfresch is a new joint venture with established Mexican banana producers Coliman. Through the strategic partnership together we aim to provide a stable and reliable supply of premium quality, organic and organic Fairtrade bananas throughout the year.
Coliman is an established producer group located in Tecoman Colima, in the Mexican state of Colima. Coliman are certified to produce Mexican organic and organic Fairtrade bananas throughout the world.
“Thanks to the fact that we are growers and distributors of our organic bananas, we can export our fruit directly, without intermediaries, from our fields, keeping the cold chain so that it arrives at its cellars in the best condition.” Coliman
The aim of the joint venture is to efficiently distribute and market Coliman bananas across Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
Produce specifications are flexible however bananas are typically available in 13kg, 17kg and 18kg printed cluster bags, with banding tape, loose Banavac or Polybag.
Coliman produce is currently shipped from Mexico into various ports in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. For more information on availability and prices please contact the Allfresch team.
In 2014 Coliman obtained the Fairtrade certification for organic bananas that are planted and harvested in Tecomán, Colima, Mexico.
The Organic, Fairtrade and Rainforest Alliance certifications further demonstrates Colimans commitment to sustainability for both their employees and the environment.
More recently, the Fairtrade premium fund has been earmarked for the investment of more than 20 projects related to health, education, construction, housing improvement and community aid. With this certification, two foundations have been created benefiting a total of 595 associates as well as their families and communities.
To deliver the best quality it is necessary to have the best infrastructure and team.
“We work every day to provide our workers safe working conditions so they can develop professionally, that’s why we have certifications such as Fairtrade and Rainforest Alliance that guarantee each of our processes for the benefit of our collaborators and the environment.” Coliman
Grown using organic fertilizers, free of chemicals, once harvested Coliman bananas are protected from extreme cold, cut manually and then transported to state of the art packing facilities. All of this ensure the best tasting banana!
