About the farm


Dole´s owned organic farm in Ecuador was established on land formerly used as pasture without any agrochemical use history. Manabí Province, the region where the farm is located, has the ideal climate for cultivating organic bananas: warm and dry, but with sufficient water supply year-round. The farm has more than 300 colaborators with a high percentage of women. All farm workers come from the immediate vicinity and the project has had a very positive social and economic effect on the community. The installations on the farm are state of the art. The latest developments in on-farm cable transport and banana packing have been installed. The farm is a true beauty with 6 Ha. of natural forest, a pond, and green areas and trees all throughout the farm for migrating and nesting birds.
