Project descriptionCompany description: Established in 1991, Exportaciones Durexporta S.A. is an Agricultural Company specialised in the growing, processing and exporting of Exotic Fresh Produce, like Mangoes, Bananas and Plantains, amongst others. Apart from the exporting of Fresh Fruit, Durexporta is currently doing Research and Development of (semi) processing fresh fruit. Semi – processing, involves IQF, purees and concentrates. Also, Durexporta is doing tests for the dehydrating of fruits for the final consumer.

The Company currently employs a fixeed amount of 400 persons, with some 800 more in the Mango season.

The Company´s main markets are Canada, USA, Europe, Russia, Middle East, EurAsia and China. The Company´s main clients are Walmart, Cosco, FRESKA, Chiquita, DOLE, Goodfarmer, CHC.

The company was the first mango producerthat built a hydrothermal processing facility to be able to export to the USA. The Company is market-leader in production, processing and mango export out of Ecuador with 40 % of the market.

The Company is growing rapidly in the processing and export of premium bananas. In addition, together with Chiquita and DOLE, Durexporta is putting Plantain (Cooking Bananas) on the world map, exporting them to the USA, Europe and Japan.

The Company has GlobalG.A.P., primus GFS and Rainforest Alliance Certifications.

Project description and expected input of the partner: The company is searching for a Finnish partner to start a possible joint venture to build a manufacturing facility for the (semi) processing of exotic fruit, such as individually quick-frozen fruits and pulps but also for manufacturing of dehydrated fruits for the final consumer. Manufacturing semi processed or dehydrated fruits close to the origin of production brings costs down and is much more ecologically responsible.

The joint venture could be financially as well as technologically, but preferable both. The joint venture should be located close to the source of the fruit, being Ecuador. The partner could also be a large consumer of semi-processed fruit, ensuring it´s supply of “raw materials”.

The different phases of the proposed cooperation depends on the know-how of the possible partner. If the partner is knowledgeable in the industry of semi processed and manufactured fruit products, the project time-line could be less than a year.
