Chiquita Brands International
Chiquita’s history is a story of unique and positive transformation. From our founding by Captain Lorenzo Dow Baker in 1870 to the addition of the Fresh Express brand in 2005, Chiquita’s dedicated employees have transformed the company into one of the leading socially and environmentally responsible produce companies in the industry. Although Chiquita’s history includes storied moments in its past, the company now proudly focuses on extending labor rights, protecting our environment and investing in the communities in which we live and work. Our Core Values of Integrity, Respect, Opportunity and Responsibility serve as the basis of our business performance and guide our everyday activities.
