We are the Afrikanische Frucht-Compagnie GmbH

We are a company with a long tradition – we have been importing bananas for more than a century. We care about what we do and how we do it. Our corporate philosophy is based on three essential principles: a product of the highest quality; strong and trustworthy partners; and a sustainable, future-oriented way of working.


Products of the highest quality – that’s our standard. And that's what we work for every day. Our main goal is to always provide fresh and sustainably produced bananas. We want our customers to rely on us and our product in every way.

Our highly qualified team is passionate about bananas. Our fruits are grown according to modern quality standards and technologies. Additionally, the fruits are tracked throughout the entire supply chain – from cultivation and import, until their arrival in professional ripening facilities.

Only by doing this, we can guarantee that a high-quality product will reach the end consumer.

We are always available for our customers and partners, ensuring punctual deliveries and a continuous flow of goods along the year.

For us, sustainability is not just a buzzword, but instead a key part of our daily business. We focus our efforts on keeping a low ecological footprint and assuming responsibility for people and the environment.

We require bananas that are produced fairly and sustainably. To achieve this, we take on every challenge – no matter how big or small. We believe it is worth the effort to take care of our planet and conduct our activities in a responsible manner.

Likewise, taking responsibility for all human beings and particularly, local producing communities, is essential for us. Fair wages, reasonable medical care and good working conditions are a mandatory requirement for us and our partners.

As well, we want to give children a much better start in life, by providing learning and development opportunities. For instance, we significantly supported a project that involved the construction of a new school in Urabá (Colombia).

To achieve an excellent education, the school is equipped with state-of-the-art technology. There, more than 1,200 children have the chance to learn, have fun, and shape their own future.


An honest, fair, and transparent partnership – both with our producers and with our customers – is the foundation of our business.

Efficient and effective work is only possible if the core values are right. From decades of experience, we know that we must be able to always rely on our partners. 

This applies to collaboration at all levels throughout the entire supply chain. We have been working together with solid partners for several decades, growing and mastering every challenge together.

In the end, this is key to successful collaboration - consistent partners who can be always trusted on.
