    Default It's bananas

    It's bananas

    Irish based Fyffes is a E700m business empire...
    ...and apparently imports the entire harvest/output from the country of Belize.

    Had the planned merger with fyffes and chiquita gone through, that would
    have meant that only 4 companies in the world owned/dominated the entire
    global banana market.

    Bananas are now the world's No.4 dietary staple after rice, wheat and corn.

    India apparently now produces more bananas than any other country, closely followed by China and the Phillipines.

    With over 80bn tonnes of bananas being exported annually around the world, it's no wonder it's the world's #1 exported fruit and in 1954 prices rose so high it was referred to as "green gold".

    This is an interesting read too (albeit a more current one must exist) - http://www.fao.org/docrep/019/i3627e/i3627e.pdf

    especially the stats tables about the production capacity & exports of different countries and more interesting - when you discover where in the world some of these crops are actually grown.

    For example, The Canary Islands is the source of all of Spain's 371,000 ton production.

    France? You guessed it - a Guadeloupe et Martinique dans le Caribbean.

    Portugal's 18,000 tons from Madeira & São Miguel

    And who'd have known....

    Bananas were famously once grown in Scotland, at the hydroponicum in Achiltibuie. A cluster of 10-20 bananas is called a hand, and each banana - a finger.

    Aye, and if you've got the distribution...

    In 2015, a UK supermarket employee discovered 5 bags of class A drugs when unpacking a box of South American Bananas with estimated street value of £1m.

    In September 2018, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice received a donation of 45 boxes of bananas that were already ripe and needed to be eaten quickly. Packed between layers of bananas in the shipment were 540 bricks of cocaine, worth around $18 million on the street.

    Where there's a market, there's always a supplier, distribution and the opportunity for the criminal fraternity.

    Just love bananas. And the banana girl looks good too. And Woody Allen produced a great comedy called 'Bananas' where a new dictator decreed that everyone should wear their underwear as their outerwear, to ensure everyone's undergarments were clean. 😀

    Hi Scots lad ! As an aside, do you find UKColumn.org & David Scott, valuable, in supporting " No to Named Person " campaign ?

    Back on your OP , did you know Tony Pantalleresco " http://health-axis.com/tony-pantallerescos-page/ ... " I recall him stating that Bananas' are now used to deliver the cabal's Vaccines, to an un-suspecting, Nutritionally-aware public...

    Yes, I'm aware that there are some who say the " De-classified or Leaked DHS [ Dept of Homeland Security ] " Nano - Quelle ", is false info, but since the companies involved are anyway, complete criminal in their business's ; ex., Nestle's theft of Drinking Water, ( good coverage of that from Abby Martin, including the hilarious reply from Nestle, where they add insult to injury, by using a Hologram presenter ! ! ! )
