Ecuador is the first supplier of bananas for Russia and contributes on average with 97% of the fruit consumed. The conflict between Ukraine and Russia affected banana exports shockingly. Small and medium producers have dammed two million bunches of bananas. The union of banana growers in Ecuador reported an oversupply of fruit due to the war between Russia and Ukraine.

The situation has also led to "price speculation". The minimum support price for a box of bananas is set at USD 6.25. That is why the union asks the authorities to enforce the Banana Law, so that "no box leaves the country below the cost of production.

Ecuador es el primer proveedor de banano para Rusia y aporta en promedio con el 97% de la fruta consumida. El conflicto entre Ucrania y Rusia afectado las exportaciones de banano de manera impactante Los pequeños y medianos productores tienen represados dos millones de racimos de banano. El gremio de bananeros de Ecuador informó de una sobre oferta de fruta por la guerra entre Rusia y Ucrania 

La situación ha derivado también en “especulación de precios“. El precio mínimo de sustentación de la caja de banano se fija en USD 6,25. Es por ello que el gremio pide a las autoridades que hagan cumplir la Ley del Banano, para que “ninguna caja salga del país por debajo del costo de producción“.
