WILMINGTON, NC - The Port of Wilmington welcomed its first shipment of bananas imported from Central America this week.

The shipment mark the start of a yearlong commitment to bring in weekly deliveries of bananas.

“Today’s shipments mean fresh fruits will reach consumers faster and cheaper,” said Hans Bean, vice president for trade development for NC Ports. “This represents major progress in our ability to service North Carolina’s significant grocery sector, several of which are having their headquarters and perishable distribution centers in NC.”   

After their delivery to the port, the bananas will be trucked to distribution centers across the Carolinas.
