Kapi Kapi Growers making consumers very happy
If you like pina coladas and… bananas from Costa Rica, then you’ll surely like the news that Kapi Kapi Growers, a Costa Rica-based grower of premium pineapples and bananas, is expanding further into the U.S. market.
“The company’s dedicated, passionate business development and logistics team is working to grow partnerships to efficiently and seamlessly manage new produce programs throughout the country,” said Sofia Acon, director of the company.
A few recent investments that have been made to support the expansion include growing the company’s logistics team; completing construction on a recycling plant that produces edge protectors; operating a pallet factory; and building a cold storage facility in Costa Rica to ensure flexibility on distribution.
With diverse and ideal growing regions across Costa Rica, Kapi Kapi Growers provides year-round supply of pineapples and bananas to more than 25 countries around the world, including U.S., Canada, England, Germany, Spain and Italy. Consumers can find Kapi Kapi products at retailers across the U.S. and Canada.
In addition to the news of its expansion plans, Kapi Kapi Growers also recently hired Latishia Bryant as logistics manager and Sharonda Masters as logistics coordinator. With the help of its new and existing team members, the company plans to have a major presence at upcoming trade shows.
“Kapi Kapi Growers will continue to make a splash in the industry and plans to have a presence at upcoming trade shows, including the IFPA Global Produce & Floral Show!” Acon said.
