Chiquita Announces Support for School Salad Bar Campaign
Date:2/9/2010

CINCINNATI, Feb. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Chiquita Brands International, Inc. (NYSE: CQB) announced today its support for the United Fresh Produce Association Foundation's "A Salad Bar in Every School" campaign.  

This multi-year financial and public health commitment by Chiquita and its Fresh Express subsidiary will help support bringing fruit and vegetable salad bars to schools across America.  Chiquita is the first produce company to commit to this vital campaign.  The Children's Fruit and Vegetable Act of 2009 (H.R. 4333) introduced by Representatives Sam Farr and Adam Putnam, along with numerous co-sponsors, supports a national salad bar policy for schools, as well as better access to fruits and vegetables, which will be required to enable schools to meet the dietary guidelines.

The launch of the "Salad Bar in Every School" campaign comes in conjunction with the Obama Administration's bipartisan childhood obesity initiative "Let's Move."  The enhanced spotlight provided by First Lady Michelle Obama's national campaign provides a unique and timely opportunity to promote school salad bars throughout the country and for the Congress to pass the Children's Fruit and Vegetable Act of 2009.  

"We are committed to promoting better childhood nutrition and wellness and we are pleased to join United Fresh in this campaign," said Fernando Aguirre, chairman and chief executive officer.  "We can't think of a better way to support this effort than by providing improved access to fruits and vegetables with school salad bars.  We have already been an active partner in
