The Philippine Consulate General in Los Angeles is pleased to inform the public that Philippine fresh bananas will now be available at Gelson’s and Walmart beginning Saturday, 21 September 2013.  Since this is a first and initial shipment, the bananas packaged as DOLE SWEETIO BANANAS will be sold in the following:

Gelson’s:  Encino, Century City, Tarzana, Newport Beach, Pacific Palisades, Calabasas, Sherman Oaks, Silver Lake, West Hollywood, Hollywood

Walmart:  Baldwin Park, Corona, City of Industry

Philippine Consul General 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!”
