Our

product

After decades of continuous innovation and leadership, Reybanpac stands out with its premium FAVORITA brand bananas.

Our value-added customer service offerings include personalized packaging and labelling, thus covering the most demanding needs of the global market.

Production

Ecuador’s geographical location makes for a privileged climate and soil type for banana cultivation, enabling us to produce and export a product with a longer shelf life all year round. The country is consequently the largest exporter of bananas in the world, with 30% share of world exports, amounting to some 7 million tons annually.

To meet market demand, Favorita has 10,000 hectares under cultivation, two-thirds of which are our own, with the rest farmed out to local producers, thus encouraging greater banana production in the region and making Favorita the top producer of bananas in Ecuador.

Favorita bananas are produced in strict and conscientious compliance with national and international regulations, as well as with certification programs and audits of the most demanding global bodies and companies.

Environment
