PALMAR - BANANA EXPORTER IN 2009

2009 became yet another year during which the main attention of Principals and top managers of CORPORACION PALMAR was concentrated to three basic directions: construction of a perfect internal structure, further development of an agricultural and industrial base of the Company and development of external commercial structures, mainly in European Economic Community countries.

According to public data by ECUADORIAN ASSOCIATION OF BANANA  EXPORTERS (A.E.B.E.), the  total volume of bananas exported in the first semester of 2009 by means of three basic export structures of the CORPORACION PALMAR  – CIPAL S.A., PRETTY LIZA FRUIT S.A. and TRADEPALM S.A. have made about 7,020 thousand boxes 22XU.

As before, CORPORACION PALMAR confidently takes its place among the ten largest banana producing and exporting companies of ECUADOR, which practically means – OF THE WORLD.

We are proud to keep our legal place in the row of the most recognized leaders of world banana export - companies NOBOA, DOLE, REYBANPACK, BONANZA FRUIT and DEL MONTE.

All export volume of CORPORACION PALMAR was divided in equal shares between two basic export directions:

1. EUROPEAN ECONOMIC COMMUNITY            3,618 thousand boxes          52 %

2. RUSSIAN FEDERATION                                 3,402 thousand boxes          48 %

Such distribution in volumes can be considered as the most rational in sense of stability of trade and decrease in commercial risks.

CORPORACION PALMAR is a unique independent Ecuadorian banana exporter, which since 2001 was selling more than 4.5 million boxes of bananas a year in the markets of the European Union.

It is important to note that PALMAR was the largest independent supplier to Europe during the period of the licenses regime, and remains the same after 2005, under the conditions of the free European banana market.

In 2008 the CORPORATION has incorporated a permanent COMMERCIAL REPRESENTATION in France, in order to encourage development of PALMAR’s commercial presence in the Western Europe. Beside that non-commercial structure, we have created in 2009 a new commercial structure - GLOBAL FRESH TRADING S.A.S., which would start its activities in France from October 2009.

The global economical crisis that brought a lot of problems to several big banana operators over the world, did not affect at all PALMAR's producing and commercial activities. Such circumstance is mainly related to the fact that our company does not depend of external financing. Just the contrary - our economical situation became even better. That paradox could be explained by happy combination of several characteristics, which make difference between PALMAR GROUP and other international banana operators:

1. We are working simultaneously at European and Russian markets.

2. We are supported by our own production facilities doing about 100,000 boxes of fruit a week.

3. We count with our direct relationship with selected group of contractual growers fully certified by GLOBALGAP, which were continuously working with us for more than ten years.

4. We produce and export with our own money and we are absolutely independent of external financing.

The basic commercial structures of PALMAR – CIPAL (FRUITSTYLELIFE CIA LTDA), PRETTY LIZA FRUIT S.A. and TRADEPALM S.A. and their branches in the various countries - provide permanent jobs to about 120 employees.

INDUSTRIA CARTONERA PALACIOS S.A.

ONE OF THE MOST ADVANCED AND SOFISTICATED CORRUGATED PLANTS IN THE WHOLE SOUTH AMERICA.

We must consider it a serious success for PALMAR to get through a full scale project involving a CORRUGATING AND CARDBOARD FACTORY owned by PALMAR – INCARPALM S.A.

The success of this project became possible thanks to the strategic alliance with American pulp-and-paper corporation BARNET INC, which has taken up long-term obligations on supply of whole volume of craft liner and other raw materials and also on granting a complete service of technical management of the new enterprise.

Today the INCARPALM S.A. operates with its full designed production capacity letting out up to 1,500 thousand cardboard boxes a week.

Among the clients of INCARPALM, are practically all of the leading exporters of agricultural production in Ecuador. The Enterprise is making boxes of various types, which are used not only for bananas and fresh fruit packaging, but also for packing fresh flowers, frozen fish and shrimps, a variety of canned food and many other kinds of food production requiring cardboard packaging.

In several experts’ opinion, the INCARPALM cardboard production, which is equipped by corrugating machines made in GERMANY by the world leader in the area – company BHV-, is the most modern and the most productive not only in Ecuador, but also in all Latin America.

INCARPALM S.A. provides constant employment for about 70 workers and employees.

Further details about INCARPALM can be found on the company site, www.incarpalm.com

CIAEGPA S.A.

THE BIGGEST DIAMOND IN THE PALMAR'S CROWN


As for the development of banana growing facilities, there is a year of several new acquisitions for PALMAR. These were several small proprieties in EL ORO and also three new relatively large plantations:

1. AGRICOLA San Sebastian – with 130 ha and two packing stations;

2. AGRICOLA JOSE MIGUEL 2 - with 50 ha and one packing station;

3. AGRICOLA DANILO EUCLIDES 2 – with 70 ha and one packing station;

It is especially important to note, that all the specified plantations have been completely converted and replanted with a new Cavendish variety - WILLIAMS MERISTEMO, which is much more productive in comparison to traditional varieties.

Since week 12 of 2009, the new plantations have started to produce the fruit getting gradually their full operational capacity.

Under good weather conditions and thanks to the newest agro-industrial technologies implemented on these three plantations, they should additionally produce about 15 thousand boxes of bananas a week.

Nowadays, the total area of own PALMAR’S production in EL ORO province reaches 2,000 hectares, which allows to cut up to 100,000 boxes of bananas a week during a high season. Presently the CIAEGPA is one of the largest and most effective banana growers in Ecuador.

Development of its production is the main strategy of CORPORATION PALMAR for the coming years.
