I refuse to take shortcuts.

Part 1 (Live-cut Harvest Area)

Cavendish Banana Export is one of the top export earners in the Philippines.  But it is not as easy as it sound.  There is no short-cut if you want to succeed in it whether you are a grower-farmer, an exporter-trader or an importer.  I am facilitating this business since 2007, many do not survive as it is not for the painted-heart.  I’ve seen a lot of hopeful business people of all sorts.  Most of us who remain standing learn the hard way.  The process could not be learn from books and from articles written in the internet.  There is no other way but to dive and immerse to the real thing.  You can either lean as a group/company or as individual entrepreneur willing to face the challenges and pitfalls.

I was in the corporate sector with well-rounded experience in admin and corporate services, and an awardee for work excellence … my experience is not enough.  I have earlier background in Advertising and creative arts to support my sales … not enough.  My long years in e-commerce and B2B is not a guarantee that I can easily land a deal nor a safeguard from scams and cheaters.  One could not believe that so many are very good in cheating and scamming, and the ones who are sincere are taken for granted or doubted.  Let me tour you to the basic process in image presentation:

The center of the center in Cavendish Banana plantation in the Philippines is Davao region.  It expands to other provinces across Mindanao.  Too huge, as far as the eye can seDelicious Sweet Banana from Davao Philipinese and one week is not enough to tour the plantation.  Where in fact, I can say that the plantation total dimension is bigger than a small country like Singapore.

It took me years to find what I am looking for:  Cooperative Well Administer Plantation that can supply according to our standard and tolerance.

Plantation Area should have quarantined entrance-exit points with guard.  Not all plantation are reliable as not all growers have ample capitalization for a well maintained, well sprayed and well fertilize banana plantation.  Till to this day I am still learning even though I already facilitated export to a number of countries since 2007:  China, Vladivostok Russia, Kuwait, Bulgaria, Iran, Egypt, Jeddah Saudi Arabia, Dubai, etc.

Davao Philippines’Cavendish Bananas is known deliciously sweet.

  • Philippine is now the 2nd Largest Exporter of Bananas in the world.
  • The majority of these shipments are destined for the growing regional markets of China, the Middle East and, to a lesser extent, Russia to satisfy their demand for fresh produce
  • Exports of Philippine bananas for the last quarter of this year are expected to rise following China’s lifting of restrictions on Philippine exports early this month.
  • Below are the 15 countries that accounted for the highest dollar value worth of bananas exported from the Philippines during 2015:
  1. Japan: US$176.9 million (40.2% of total bananas imports)
  2. China: $109.2 million (24.8%)
  3. South Korea: $51.6 million (11.7%)
  4. Iran: $33.8 million (7.7%)
  5. United Arab Emirates: $19.2 million (4.4%)
  6. Saudi Arabia: $12.9 million (2.9%)
  7. Kuwait: $8.7 million (2%)
  8. New Zealand: $6.5 million (1.5%)
  9. Hong Kong: $5.2 million (1.2%)
  10. Singapore: $5.1 million (1.2%)
  11. Malaysia: $2.3 million (0.5%)
  12. Taiwan: $2.1 million (0.5%)
  13. North Korea: $1.7 million (0.4%)
  14. Bahrain: $1.1 million (0.2%)
  15. Qatar: $912,000 (0.2%)
  • Among the above countries, the fastest-growing consumers of Philippine bananas exports since 2011 were: Bahrain (up 822.2% in value), Saudi Arabia (up 638.1%), Malaysia (up 312.3%) and Kuwait (up 195.4%).Production system ranges from backyard to highly integrated operation with the latter catering to the export market.
  • Weak demand in the EU.
  • Total import of fruit by the Philippines from 2008 till 2013. The highest volume of imports occurred in 2012 reaching 240,477MT while the lowest was in 2008 to 187,265MT. The average annual growth rate was 3.68% during this time period.
  • Philippine farms produced a total of 8.65m tonnes of bananas valued at P117.15bn ($2.6bn) in 2013, down from a peak of 9.23m tonnes worth P108.13bn ($2.4bn) the previous year, according to PSA data. Concerted efforts over the past two decades to expand banana production have led to the commodity becoming the country’s most valuable crop as well as its most profitable agricultural export.
  • The past years, the yield dramatically been reduced due to destruction brought about by the strong typhoons that hit the country particularly the major producing areas in Mindanao. Another calamity was the most recent “El Nino.”  Nevertheless, these are not typical and Mindanao is not a typhoon belt.
  • Overall, the average annual growth rate was 0.26% and 16%, respectively for production and area for the six-year time period.
  • The farms are generally small in size (1-5 ha) with minimal care resulting to low yield.
  • Big farms are typically managed by Cooperatives, Organizations and Investment Companies
