One Banana's parent company, AgroAmerica, was founded in 1958 in Guatemala and has grown to become one of the world's largest banana growers. It supplies its produce to companies and supermarkets across the U.S., Canada, and Europe. Focused on the growing, shipping, and distribution of organic bananas, One Banana is proud to cultivate their fruit in accordance with the most demanding global safety and regulatory labor standards with the help of leading edge technology like Frequentz's IRIS platform.
"Product integrity and consumer safety are key priorities for AgroAmerica. We pride ourselves on producing the highest quality fruit while still maintaining responsible and sustainable agricultural practices in every step of the supply chain. Leveraging Frequentz's traceability software delivers the transparency we need in order to confirm that both our produce and procedures continue to meet the highest level of standards," says Ingrid Lopez, Logistics Director, One Banana.
The Solution As food demands continue to grow around the world, so does the technological needs of growers, especially as food comes from multiple international sources. It's also increasingly important for growers to have full visibility and product traceability across the supply chain as more and more consumers demand to know where their food comes from. Frequentz's GS1 and global compliant solutions deliver the ability to track and analyze historical data as well as the dexterity to handle rapid operational queries from supply partners. This reduces repetitive data gathering and provides accurate records and reporting on such things as specific crop information, irrigation or even soil testing. These solutions can help identify potential sources of contamination or assist in monitoring cold chain or temperature controlled logistics, which naturally lead to better responses to recall events.
