The international banana market. Hurricane dean : major impacts on production in the Caribbean

Loeillet D.. 2007. Fruitrop (English ed.) (148) : p. 3-5.

Forecasters were right-the 2007 hurricane season, is an intense one. Hurricane Dean wrecked Antilles banana production. The plantations were hard-hit in both the French West Indies and the ACP countries in the zone, but these bananas should be back in European shops in February 2008. Demand is in a growing phase and alternative sources of supply are being sought. Both import and retail prices are rising.
