Jindal: Chiquita to return to New Orleans
NEW ORLEANS- Chiquita Brands International Inc. is returning to New Orleans after nearly 40 years, bringing up to 350 new jobs.
Gov. Bobby Jindal and Chiquita official Mario Pacheco say the company is moving from the Port of Gulfport, Mississippi, where it relocated in the 1970s after more than 70 years in New Orleans.
Louisiana and the port offered more than $5 million in incentives.
The officials say Chiquita is expected to begin shipping through New Orleans in early 2015.
The move will leave the Port of Gulfport without one of its four principle tenants.
