- Structure Element
In Hamburg, a metropolis in the center of Europe, the fresh fruit trade has a long standing tradition. Since the beginning of the last century AFRIKANISCHE FRUCHT-COMPAGNIE - AFC- has been part of that history as one of the few pioneers of the European banana market.
In the 1920's AFC established its position with its own reefer vessels and the introduction of trademark bananas to nearly all European markets. In those days AFC had its own plantations in Cameroon where stable, fair and sincere buisness relationships with retailers and producers were founded. During the late 1950's, after an intermediate involvement in Liberia, AFC continued to establish the same solid business connections with experienced producers in the best banana growing areas in Latin America.
