We started in 1992 as Exportadora Bananera del Pacifico SA (Exbanpac), exporting conventional bananas from the Region of Piura to Europe, with our "Blagi bananas" brand. Years later, and due to the particular weather conditions of northern Peruvian regions, as well as the increased interest in healthier food worldwide, we decided to start the development of an organic program.
Northern Peruvian regions, particularly Tumbes and Piura, are dry tropics, meaning that they have all the conditions of a tropic, but with lack, or at least very few rainfalls. Consecuently, these conditions avoids the development of the Sigatoka fungus disease, which is one of the main reasons for heavy fumigation in conventional fields, and so, it makes these regions a perfect place for organic banana farming.
Therefore, after being the first company to bring certifiers from Europe to visit these Peruvian regions, we decided to form Organia SAC in 2001, and startedworking with growers from the region of Tumbes. in the begining, we started supplying DOLE with our organic bananas. then, in 2003, we started the first direct exports to the United States and a first trial to Japan, being the first company to send Peruvian bananas to that market.
One year later, in 2004, we started to sell on weekly basis to the Japanese market, and have continued like that for more than 16 years.
also, thru all these years we have also exported out bananas to Canada, United States, Europe
