Ethics & Code of Conduct
We're guided by ethics and integrity

Chiquita is committed to conducting business ethically and in compliance with the letter and spirit of the law. This commitment is reflected in our Company’s Core Values of Integrity, Respect, Opportunity and Responsibility. These values embody who we are and what we do.


Organizational integrity starts with the personal integrity of our individual employees who are committed to doing the right thing.
