Turns out the banana business is a little more complex than it may seem. Chiquita is one of the biggest names ever to exist in the industry but in the 1990's they fell on some tough times. This video focuses on their troubles during that time and the recovery that followed. Chiquita is also one of the most controversial company's of all time so the video also takes a brief look at that.

Sounds like the problem is not with Chiquita but with the EU.

I remember something involving Banana Republic-like crippling effects in Jamaica back in the 80's. They use to not only grow their own bananas, but also harvest their own milk. But then companies (I assume like Chiquita Banana) came in and thanks to a new Jamaican President began selling their products at much lower prices than what local Jamaican farmers could provide. From there, milk powder became more popular/affordable, and the local farmers were forced to regularly empty huge tanks of milk in to the sewers since they'd spoil before being able to be sold. Interestingly, Jamaica has since found their economical niche, but if world economic trade were to cease, Jamaica might have an incredibly hard time adjusting and inadvertently cause a country wide famine.

Wow I never thought of "banana republic" as a derogatory term. There is even a store named Banana Republic 🤷‍♀️
Dirk Diggler
Never knew there was such a thing as a Banana mafia.

Now if my class requires to, I could easily do a 10min speech on bananas.

Robert Harris
Bananas have a dark history. literally the banana wars are a thing.
YoMomma
Yeah this was confusing
Geo Thermal
In my neck of the woods, Dole bananas are much more common, and stores *don't stock* more than one brand.
Anibal Ruiz
Hello Mike I rewatched your video and now understand why you left it at that. I have been reading Dan Koeppel’s book Banana I recommend you take a look at it
Edward Shaw
Please do another video about all the controversy
Snogard
Chiquita is apparently STILL under investigation in Columbia for hiring terrorists groups.
Diane Spacefear
This video really got me in the mood to overthrow Central American governments.

bananas and drug smuggling go hand in hand
Matoro Rocks
I like how the fact that United, and the company it combined with to form Chiquita(Cuyamel) overthrew multiple governments, for the sake of obtaining land for cheap, and being able to pay their workers less. Kind of a bad thing, but I suppose It didn't have a huge affect on it's rise(as they were already one of three banana republics by then), and they wouldn't fall until decades later.
Sarah Smith
a banana always rises ...and when it falls it will always inevitably rise again
Boop Doop
Isn't banana republic also a clothing store? Interesting name choice now
Juste un trou d'eau
So they were basically the company from prison break
