I. Overview of Advertising Plan A. Industry Trends
Education in the Philippines has undergone several stages of development from the pre-Spanish times to the present. In meeting the needs of the society, education serves as focus of emphases/priorities of the leadership at certain periods/epochs in our national struggle as a race. Higher education in the Philippines is characterized by the diversity of its origin, plurality in its mission and regional accessibility. However, higher-education institutions established during the Spanish period were more monolithic and Catholic in orientation. It was only under American rule that there was diversity, plurality and greater regional accessibility. In the desire to have a sound democratic foundation, consistent with the tenets of democracy, the expansion of state higher education was equally matched by the growth of secretarian-sponsored higher-education institutions of both Catholic and Protestant persuasion. Higher education in Philippines began with the establishment of the University of Santo Tomas (UST) in 1611. With the founding of UST, it can be claimed that private higher education in the country preceded the state higher-education institutions were established before the arrival of the American: the University of San Carlos (USC), located in Cebu, which was originally founded as the Colegio-Seminario de san Ildefonso in 1595 by the Jesuits Antonio Sedeno, Pedro Chirino and Antonio Pereira; the Ateneo Municipal de Manila, founded in 1804, which eventually became the Ateneo de Manila University in 1959. Many students and professors throughout the world are no longer satisfied, as they used to be,…...

Blood Banana

...TB0245 Andreas Schotter Mary Teagarden Blood Bananas: Chiquita in Colombia No one laughs at the banana in its areas of origin. It is too serious a business, on which jobs and lives depend. Peter Chapman, Author of Jungle Capitalists. For Chiquita Brands International, a pioneer in the globalization of the banana industry, bananas are not only serious business, they represent an array of economic, social, environmental, political, and legal hassles. Since its founding more than a hundred years ago as United Fruit Company, Chiquita has been involved in paying bribes to Latin American government officials in exchange for preferential treatment, encouraging or supporting U.S. coups against smaller nations, putting in place dictatorships in Central America’s “banana republics,” exploiting local workers, creating an abusive monopoly, and now doing business with terrorists.1 For American multinationals, the rewards of doing business abroad are enormous, but so are the risks. Over the past decades, no place has been more hazardous than Colombia, a country that is just emerging from a deadly civil war and the effects of wide-ranging narco-terrorism. Chiquita found out the hard way. It made tens of millions in profit growing bananas in Colombia, only to emerge with its reputation splattered in blood.2 In 2004, Chiquita voluntarily admitted criminal responsibility to the U.S. Justice Department that one of its Colombian banana subsidiaries had made protection payments from......

It is a case that depicts the challenges faced by a company trying to maintain production and protect its employees while navigating between two very different cultures in a hostile situation. the lines of the ethics and morality are not as straight forward as they seem on the surface, and Chiquita’s management struggles to make decisions that will transcend both cultures’ view of right versus wrong. was one of the largest and growing   fruit company in America who faced a dramatic problem in the 90’s with the AUC, a Colombian paramilitary organization that promoted violence act and considered to be terrorist, what happened was they inquired the fruit company to pay them specific amount of money monthly that was required for their security services as they   claimed! The situation was straightforward, either Chiquita pays for the terrorist Chiquita Brands International and its leaders learned a very hard lesson about paying off terrorist groups to protect their employees.

Blood Bananas

...Blood Bananas Case Introduction Chiquita Brands International is a successful company with a long history that began in 1899 as the United Fruit Company. The company has endured over time through changes in leadership, acquisitions, and process changes to become one of “the big three” banana distributors in the world. While they have become successful; their past has been tarnished by paying bribes to government officials, supporting U.S. coups against smaller nations and exploiting local workers. The company that originally revolutionized the banana trade by using refrigerated ships was now faced with the decision of whether to continue to pay a terrorist organization in Colombia, South America to ensure the safety of their employees, stop payment and face the consequences or sell the business and exit the country. Background The issue at hand is partly the result of the industry itself. Bananas grow best in tropical regions, such as the Caribbean, Central America, Asia and Africa. They are critical cash crop for many of the lesser-developed countries. The banana producing country in question here is Colombia, South America which has a population of over 45M people, the second largest in South America. It has the 4th largest economy in Latin America although the income inequality is prevalent due to very uneven wealth distribution. It is in this environment that paramilitary organizations such as the AUC thrive. According to Fernando Aguirre, a former Chiquita...

Chiquita Banana

...doing well since its inception and had created a place for itself as a leader in the banana industry. Confident about its political connections and standing, Chiquita believed it could fight the EU policy. The company launched an aggressive and costly lobbying campaign in Washington denouncing the EU policy. Chiquita spent time and money trying to regain their power rather than looking for alternatives. Given the unpredictable politics that drive trade disputes, and the uncertain influence of arbitration institutions like the WTO, betting on a legal battle can be highly risky. They failed to realize that sometimes it is smarter to maneuver around a barrier than to try to tear it down. Under pressure from the United States, the World Trade Organization ruled that the policy was discriminatory and ordered that it be dismantled .But the Europeans were slow to comply, and so “began the "banana war"-the worst transatlantic economic dispute since World War II. With a limited ability to export AGP bananas, Chiquita lost a third of its European Market share between 1992 and 1995” (Marcelo, 2005, 24).Determined to regain its position, Chiquita continued to fight the EU policy, increasing its debt as its hold in Europe kept slipping. Analysis of international challenges faced by Chiquita (4 C’s) Country risk/Political risk – Chiquita was facing major political risks after the introduction of the new banana trade policy. The new policy restricted access to major markets and......

Price of Bananas

...International business is wrought with ethical issues. The Chiquita Banana documentary, “The Price of Bananas,” made this point ever more apparent. I fully believe, as stated in the documentary that Chiquita Bananas was complicit and was willing to accept death to keep the banana operation running. Anyone involved in this decision should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. My first thoughts about this situation and putting myself in the position of Chiquita CEO, I would utilize the Weber model of organizational ethics and/or the Army-Baylor 7 step method for decision making. The first question or principle in the Weber method is the organizational interests take precedence over individual self-interest. I would say the CEO rationalized his decision and thought he was doing this. And given the situation, I do not necessarily think the CEO was making a decision to pay the AUC in a motivation of self-interest. The second principle is individual rights take precedence over organizational interests. This can get a little sticky given Chiquita decided to pay para-military troops millions of dollars. If individual rights were of great concern to the CEO, he probably should have made sure his workers and the working conditions were safe, secure, and healthy. Instead, farming bananas in Columbia is one of the most profitable means because of low income earning. The third principle is community good takes precedence over organizational interests. If......

Banana Peel

...the Study Bananas are among the most widely consumed fruits on the planet and, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Americans' favorite fresh fruit. The curvy yellow fruits are high in "potassium and pectin, a form of fiber," said Laura Flores, a San Diego-based nutritionist. They can also be a good way to get magnesium and vitamins C and B6. "Bananas are high in antioxidants, which can provide protection from free radicals, which we come into contact with every day, from the sunlight to the lotion you put on your skin," Flores added. Hawaii is the only place in the U.S. where bananas are grown commercially, although at one time they were also grown in southern California and Florida. The overwhelming majority of the bananas Americans eat come from countries in Latin America and South America, including Costa Rica, Ecuador, Colombia, Honduras, Panama, and Guatemala. Bananas were first found in New Guinea and spread throughout the Philippines nearly 4,000 years ago, and from their diversified around the world. They became a popular item in India, Indonesia, Australia, and Malaysia and were even used to make clothes and other fabrics in Japan. It wasn’t until they hit colonial plantations in America that they were used for inter cropping plants such as coffee, cacao, and pepper plantations. Their leaves provided the perfect shade for the more valuable plants, which was only the beginning of their endless environmental uses and health benefits. Bananas are rich......

Banana Musa x paridasiaca Description Origin and Distribution Varieties Climate Soil Propagation Culture Harvesting Yield Handling and Packing Controlled Ripening and Storage Pests Diseases Food Uses Animal Feed Other Uses Folklore The word "banana" is a general term embracing a number of species or hybrids in the genus Musa of the family Musaceae. Some species such as M. Basjoo Sieb. & Zucc. of Japan and M. ornata Roxb., native from Pakistan to Burma, are grown only as ornamental plants or for fiber. M. textilis Nee of the Philippines is grown only for its fiber, prized for strong ropes and also for tissue-thin tea bags. The so-called Abyssinian banana, Ensete ventricosum Cheesman, formerly E. edule Horan, Musa ensete Gmel., is cultivated in Ethiopia for fiber and for the staple foods derived from the young shoot, the base of the stem, and the corm.
