Our History

Our history begins in 1989 when we first established our first banana plantation in the area of Tacotalpa, Tabasco in the southeast of Mexico.

By 1992 we had grown to become the biggest exporter and distributor of Mexican bananas with a strong presence in the United States.

During that year we successfully ventured into the production of other tropical products such as pineapples and papaya.

Our company has grown and diversified its production not only in different states in the southeast of Mexico, but also in Nigeria, where we have quickly become the leading banana, pineapple and greenhouse producer in only two years.

Today, San Carlos is the leading Mexican and Nigerian producer and exporter of bananas, having successfully placed our products with the most demanding clients in Europe, Russia, Mediterranean and the Middle East.


To promote the development of agriculture throughout the world by performing as a competitive international company. Using the natural and technological advantages of our locations, we put our products in the international market place. The advantages given are meant to enrich the quality and provide the best fruits.


To develop products that create sustainable change and income for our communities while providing our clients with the outmost quality in every product our fields produce. To accomplish that goal, it is important to innovate our technology to assure that our product will be competitive in the industry in terms of quality and price.
