Bananas are now the world’s most exported fruit with approximately 100 billion units and being shipped worldwide.


Cavendish Bananas
The fresh Cavendish bananas we export are carefully selected and sourced from smallholder farmers in Kenya and
Uganda by our team and then packed under our own brand ‘Spectrum Fresh Banana’. We source the bananas from
banana plantations in Kenya and Uganda. We have adopted 100% drip irrigation technology and have chosen
suitable areas in Kenya and Uganda with an ideal climatic conditions to cultivate the bananas. All the bananas are of
same origin, variety and quality. We use hygienic containers to pack the bananas.

The Cavendish banana exported by Farm Spectrum is the most popular banana variety that is consumed worldwide.
In fact the greatest percentage of bananas that fill the shelves of Western supermarkets are ultimately the Cavendish
type. The greatest advantage of the Cavendish banana, just like many varieties of bananas, lies in the fact that they
are highly affordable and non-seasonal hence available all year round. The Cavendish banana is mainly grown in the
highlands especially in Central and Nyanza regions.
Origin of Cavendish bananas
The Cavendish banana reached the borough of Devonshire in England in the late 19th century from Mauritius. Before
that, the Canary Islands had been the cradle from which Portuguese explorers from the 1500s dispersed the variety
to a number of countries, including Western Europe and the Americas. However, African varieties of Cavendish,
especially the dwarf cultivar, the most popular in Western nations, came into the continent from the original home of
the banana, South-east Asia at a very early age. From there they dispersed into Kenya, Uganda and West Africa.
Ideally, our Kenya Cavendish bananas belong to every client who orders with us from any part of the globe.  They are

The taste of Cavendish banana is great. The fruit can be used for normal consumption as a fruit, fruit salads, baking,
fruit compotes as well as complementing routine food.
We ship fresh bananas to global clients. Our Kenya Cavendish banana is of the highest quality, green, clean and

The following important steps are carried out in the process of preparing our Kenya Cavendish banana for export:
Pre-surveying of each Cavendish farm/plantation before any harvest is done.
Each harvesting team must be accompanied by one of the Farm Spectrum’s Banana Quality Inspectors.
Each packing line at the selection and weighing center is supervised by one Quality Inspector.
The pickers and collectors are given clear cutting and handling orders.
The Cavendish bananas are thoroughly checked before being loaded to the shipping containers.
An allowance of 14 hours is given between cutting and loading in order to allow for optimum cooling.
The fruits are thoroughly inspected by relevant government Inspectorate Agencies to ensure conformity to global
quality standards.
