    Historical Context

    This company was incorporated under the laws of Maryland on February 15, 1924, as a reorganization of the Atlantic Fruit Company, which had been incorporated under the laws of Delaware on December 27, 1912, to take over the business and assets of Atlantic Fruit & Steamship Company.

    The company owned 132,000 acres of land in Nicaragua and 153,000 acres in Cuba, a considerable portion of which is cultivated in bananas and sugar cane, and on which a sugar mill was erected and operated. The company also owned 30,000 acres of banana property in Jamaica; and had branch offices in New York City, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and agencies in Canada and a number of Eastern states.
