U.S. distributor goes to court over banana no-show
Long Island-based fruit company Esposito Brothers has launched a lawsuit over an alleged failure to deliver a large shipment of bananas in mid-2013, the New York Post reported.
The publication reported 21,000 boxes of Ecuadorian-sourced Bonita bananas Esposito ordered from Fruit Importers Americas Inc. did not arrive in July that year.
The story reported the lawsuit was against "Ecuador’s biggest fruit conglomerate", but Esposito declined to comment on the case or provide clarification as to the details.
The suit seeks at least US$27 million in damages, the story reported.
