Kapi Kapi Growers Adds Oro Pineapples to Product Offerings

MIAMI – Kapi Kapi Growers, one of the leading growers and distributors of pineapples and bananas in the world, meets retail and foodservice demand with the addition of its new Oro Pineapple.

This vibrant new product is available just in time for the busy holiday season and 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 features a beautiful, 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 Kapi Kapi Business Development Manager, Doug Bakker. “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 key supplier of high-quality pineapples and bananas to some of the world’s largest retailers and multi-national tropical fruit brands. With expansive growing regions across Costa Rica and a continued commitment to farming innovation and sustainability, the brand can provide steady 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 Kapi Kapi Director, Sofia Acon. “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.”
