Banana industry in the Caribbean

Stropirea culturilor de banane cu chimicale

A Costa Rican worker filling a pump sprayer with chemicals used for maintenance of plants on the banana plantation near Puerto Limon, Costa Rica, 2 September 2004. Eighty percent of the exported bananas in the world are grown in Latin America. Local farms have no other alternative than to sell for a price offered by the multinational company. When working conditions and ecology is in question, the corporations do not have any responsibility as they do not own plantations. Local governments in the attempt of organizing banana export provide low duty taxes on export, they try to eliminate social and enviromental politics to attract the big companies to their countries.
