Pineapple

The queen of fruit.

No other tropical fruit is as famous and popular as the pineapple. So it’s no wonder that pineapple products have become commodities. Tens of thousands of tons of juice concentrate are shipped annually to Spain and Italy alone.

Everyone knows what pineapple tastes like, so we won’t bother to gush about its flavor and aroma. For our quality-conscious customers, the variety is important: The number-one pineapple is the "MD-2" from Costa Rica. No other variety is as wonderfully sweet, aromatic, harmonious, or as valued for its bright yellow color – that’s how our customers see it. Another premium variety is the “white perola” from Brazil.

The most popular in terms of quantity is the "smooth cayenne" variety, which is mainly cultivated in Asia. The "queen" – also from Asia – is marketed as a more economical version.
