We developed the private brand of bananas, “frescana” produced in the Philippines and “Tanabe Farm” produced in Ecuador, South America, in collaboration with ANA TRADING, and we distribute them as a flagship product of our Fresh Produce Business. We guarantee safety by reinforcing our traceability system, and fully leveraging our advantageous integrated distribution system from managing production site through to importing, processing and finally selling.
Our main buyers are major supermarkets, convenience stores, and produce markets nationwide. The volume of bananas we supply accounts for approximately 10% of all banana sales in Japan.
*The name “frescana” is a combination of the word “fresco” (means “fresh” in Spanish) and ANA.

The Fresh Food Business is operated by ANA Foods Co, Ltd., a company formed in April 2015 following the consolidation of ANA TRADING Group food-related businesses.
