Costa Rica is a beautiful travel destination; however, it is also a country that farms many delicious tropical fruits, such as plantains. We selected this tropical fruit to make our chips because of their delectable flavor, because they are locally grown, and because it gives us an opportunity to support small Costa Rican farmers.

Plantain production in Costa Rica is done mainly by small farmers. There are roughly 6.000 farmers with an average planted area of 1,8 hectares per farm for a total of about 11.000 hectares in the country. These small farmers are very good at the craft of farming; this is in their hearts and it is also what they have chosen to dedicate their life to. We, at DISASO, have an interest in supporting small farmers by buying their product at fair prices, adding value to it, and taking it to customers around the world that will appreciate their hard work and effort.

This is what Paisanitos® Plantain Chips represent to us; an opportunity for you to taste an exotic and delicious product and an opportunity to support Costa Rican farming and food processing. Our chips are truly the result of the effort and passion of these small farmers who believe in producing remarkable plantains applying sustainable and organic farming concepts to their craft. They do this not only for the health of their families and farms, but also for the people that taste our wonderful Paisanitos® Plantain Chips.

DISASO, S.A., the Costa Rican company that brings you this wonderful product line, also seeks the highest quality standards in its products; this is why all required food safety standards are implemented during reception, processing, packing, and shipping of all Paisanitos® Plantain Chips.

International Orders

Paisanitos® Plantain Chips are available to you in different sizes and presentations. Product for international orders is only available in fully loaded containers; however, an international order may contain this and other Paisanitos® products (consolidated containers) so long as the product origin is the same. At your request we may produce a quote for palletized product; however, keep in mind that cost is higher as a result of the additional packaging material that is required (pallets, corner boards, and pallet wrapping) and because container space cannot be equally maximized when cargo is palletized. This would increase the inland and ocean freight cost per unit.
