Colombia: Banana Production Guaranteed During Health Emergency

27.3.2020

Banana growers from the departments of Magdalena and La Guajira strengthen the production of the fruit in 15 thousand hectares of planting, to maintain national supply during the coronavirus health emergency.

Likewise, the banana businessmen of the region have donated more than 50 tons of the fruit to the food banks destined to mitigate the negative impacts of the emergency.

“This situation we are going through invites us to work as a team and be more supportive, in addition, to show the fundamental role that agricultural industries have in the country. From Asbama we are going to comply with the provisions of the Decree, and we will work throughout the production and marketing chain, complying with the strictest health protocols to continue supplying national and international markets,” said José Francisco Zúñiga, executive president of Asbama.

Regarding the measures to reduce the risks of the spread of the coronavirus among banana workers, in the producing farms social distancing is implemented and other measures such as the use of biosafety elements such as face masks, gloves, soaps, detergents and disinfectants for constant hand washing.
