Chiquita has come a long way since the notorious banana-republic days of political and military meddling across Central America. Today, 100% of the company’s farms in Latin America have been certified by the Rainforest Alliance to meet that organizations high standards for conservation, management, and worker compensation. Having completed the certification, “Miss Chiquita” will now be joined with the Rainforest Alliance’s frog logo on bananas sold in Europe. That’s not bad.
