About Us

Sol79 is a banana purée brand made by AgroAmerica, an agro-industrial food company with more than 50 years in the banana business.

AgroAmerica is one of the largest growers, shippers and distributors of fresh fruit with operations in Central America, Peru and Ecuador. Founded in 1958, it is managed vertically, which allows clear lines of command and strict control which leads to high efficiency in its operations. AgroAmerica is committed to resource conservation and to the responsible production of bananas.

Sol79 banana purée is made solely from ripe bananas, grown sustainably by us in our plantations in Guatemala. In 2016, AgroAmerica launched the Sol79 banana purée brand, to meet the needs of its clients and consumers.

We provide a natural product, without additives, but with all the nutritional properties that contribute to a healthier diet while enhancing the food and nutritional security of consumers. With this new product, AgroAmerica also prevents waste in its plantations, keeping food from going to waste in the world.

We are proud to be among the best banana producers in the world.

Sol 79 is the perfect description for our delicious bananas, harvested under strict environmental, labor and social standards.

Sol 79 represents the average annual temperature of 79°F in the coasts of Guatemala, which is ideal for our bananas to grow under perfect conditions.

Our bananas are produced in geographically-blessed areas, with some of the world's unique agronomic and climate conditions. We are committed to the conservation of the environment and to the care of our workers and their communities.

Beyond just complying with the laws, we strive to go the extra mile and be consistent with the values of our company.

Thus, we have an extensive corporate social responsibility program that is consistent with the United Nations´ Sustainable Development Goals.

Our Values

Our Banana Farms

In our plantations located in Guatemala, Ecuador and Peru, we use state-of-the-art technology and farming practices that are environmentally friendly and respectful of nearby communities. This results in a sustainable product of excellent quality.

At AgroAmerica we take care of the smallest details during the production process, from selecting and caring for the soil, using ecological materials, saving water, to packaging and delivery of the fruit. We also care about the safety and well-being of our workers, who are our most important resource.

We provide personal protection equipment (PPE) and ensure that industrial and occupational safety standards are met.

100% of our farms are certified by Rainforest Alliance and Global G.A.P. We also have BASC and SCS certifications. This, and more, is what makes AgroAmerica a leader in banana production, job creation and corporate social responsibility.
