Miami, Florida-based Kapi Kapi Growers meets retail and foodservice demand with the addition of its new Oro Pineapple.
This new product will be offered alongside Kapi Kapi’s traditional and crownless pineapple varieties, as well as their premium quality bananas. Derived from the Spanish word for gold, Kapi Kapi’s Oro Pineapples has a high-shell color to catch shoppers’ attention at retail stores.
“Our Oro Pineapples are especially sought after for their naturally vibrant golden color, which make easy and great merchandising displays for retailers,” said Doug Bakker, business development manager.
“Likewise, our Crownless Pineapples cut down on food waste as well as prep in the kitchen, making it ideal for most foodservice and in store cutting operations.”
The Crownless Pineapples mirror their name without the top leaves, which help produce less waste while yielding more product per case.
Since its founding in 1987, Kapi Kapi has been a supplier of pineapples and bananas to large retailers and multi-national tropical fruit brands. With large growing regions across Costa Rica and a commitment to farming innovation and sustainability, the brand can provide a year-round supply of pineapple and bananas to more than 25 countries around the world.
“The Oro Pineapples are carefully selected after maturing naturally on the plant,” said Sofia Acon, director. “New consumers are loving the sweetness and the vibrant color of our Oro Pineapple and we are excited to continue to grow this new category.”
