Philippine Consul General in Los Angeles Ma. Hellen Barber-De La Vega said, “The Philippines is promoting our fresh bananas in the mainstream market, and we are the first Asian country to bring these fresh highland Cavendish bananas to US soil commercially after eight years.  We encourage the Filipino community to patronize and share this nutritious fruit with their mainstream American and other friends. It’s more fun in the Philippines.  It’s more fun eating fresh bananas from the “Philippines too!” END
