The Costa Rica banana industry has regained its exports in recent years. Today the country’s fruit reaches 35 nations, mainly the United States and the European Union.

This commercial success is reinforced by the scientific field work in the banana plantations made by the Research Center of the National Banana Corporation, CORBANA in La Rita of Guápiles. New techniques in the planting and production of bananas are being studied at this center, in addition to innovative treatments
to combat pests affecting plantations (biological control).

The Research Center provides information, consulting and scientific field applications to improve the quality of banana production to producers so they can be more competitive in the international market.

With over 30 years of operation, the CORBANA Research Center has won a good reputation worldwide as one of the best in Latin America. A treatment that is well known is against the Black Sigatoka (fungus that attacks the banana leaves) work in health and soil quality, biological control and training for producers.

Costa Rica is a pioneer and world-renowned for its environmental and social commitment to improve production in harmony with the environment and quality of life of workers and their families. CORBANA states that you can keep these
specific commitments and be competitive in the international market, despite lower production standards of other producing countries.

“If possible, we should try to do and keep putting effort into environment and social aspects, for that we must focus on high productivities and internal critical areas. We must differentiate our product with Geographical Indication “Bananas from Costa Rica,” said Jorge Sauma Aguilar, CORBANA CEO.

In recent years, the banana industry has positioned itself as a successful model in the commercial, scientific and social aspects. This translates into direct employment for 40,000 people and indirectly for another 100,000.
