Eating fruits and vegetables is key to a healthy diet. Latin America is a major producer of nutritious and high-quality fruits enjoyed around the world. Here are some facts about five different fruits from five different Latin American countries.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that adults consume at least 400 grams of fruits and vegetables per day. Latin America is one of the major producers of fruits and vegetables consumed by people around the world. The entire fruit and vegetable value chain – farmers, processors, exporters/importers, retailers, cooperatives, and agricultural companies – needs to work together to increase food production in both quantity and quality to serve the planet’s growing population. To achieve that, it requires innovative solutions and modern tools that are capable of increasing productivity and quality and safeguarding responsible and sustainable food production. Bayer – especially with its more than 65 Food Chain Partnership initiatives in the region – has offered support and expertise to Latin American farmers, helping them market their fruits and vegetables internationally.
