What affects the quality of the Yellow bananas?

We carry out independent audits on plantations to maintain the highest quality of still green bananas regardless of the season. We then monitor the fruit during transport to maintain its freshness, and advanced ripening technology allows us to provide customers with always tasty and yellow bananas.
