Brazilian companies offer to buy Chiquita Bananas

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two Brazilian companies are offering to buy Chiquita Brands for about $6 million in cash.

The unexpected offer was announced by juice maker Cutrale Group.

Chiquita says it is considering the offer, but isn't impressed.

In March, the company announced a planned merger with an Irish Banana producer. That would allow Chiquita to regain the title as the world's largest banana producer - which it lost to Dole in the 1990's.
