Miami, Florida-based Kapi Kapi Growers, a producer of pineapples and bananas, has hired Wendy O’Brien to help further the company’s U.S. and North American business expansion.
O’Brien has more than 20 years of experience in fresh produce sales and marketing. In addition to garnering new business with retail, foodservice, wholesale and processing contacts, she will also work with customers to ensure they receive a high quality product in a timely manner.
“My job is to develop mutually beneficial, long-term partnerships that will sustain business growth at all levels,” O’Brien said. “I look forward to supporting Kapi Kapi in its domestic and North American growth journey and bringing premium bananas and pineapples to our customers.”
Kapi Kapi has grown bananas and pineapple since 1987. The company is the largest carbon-neutral certified banana grower in Costa Rica and Latin America. The company also aims to inspire sustainable growth by leading environmentally-friendly practices and building partnerships for the future.
Kapi Kapi’s founding company is a family-run operation with more than 30 years of experience responsibly growing bananas and pineapple. Looking to the future, it aims to expand its customer base to support retailers in need of a private label partner, as well as those looking to differentiate pineapple and banana offerings.
