LET’S TOUR AROUND THE BANANA PLANTATION IN DAVAO DEL NORTE – TADECO

Antonio Floirendo, Sr.

Antonio Floirendo, Sr. (November 20, 1915 – June 29, 2012) was a Filipino entrepreneur and landowner whose main business was his 6000-hectare banana plantation in Panabo, Davao del Norte, Philippines, earning him the monicker of “banana king” during the Marcos dictatorship.

Profile

The inspiring journey of Tagum Agricultural Development Company, Incorporated or TADECO, began in December 20, 1950 when its founder, Don AOF (Antonio O. Floirendo, Sr.), turned his vision into a reality in the vast, swampy land of Southeastern Mindanao. True enough, after more than 60 years of responsibly  tilling and caring for the land, the kind nature does pay back; the thousands of hectares of what was marshy land is now an enormous 6,628-hectare contiguous banana plantation, unfalteringly bringing premium and export-grade Cavendish Bananas to the dining table of our customers all over the globe. It has an average yield of almost 5,000 boxes/ha/year which produces no less than 30,000,000 boxes/year. Its wide-range of operations ushered the establishment of the affiliate companies to provide necessary services for the farm; making TADECO as the flagship company of the ANFLO Group of Companies.
