(0.19) for fresh bananas; the frying (0.28) and the packaging (0.20) for sale banana; the frying (0.28) and the
packaging (0.17) for banana chips. Meanwhile, the quality attributes for fresh bananas were fruit maturity and
damage level, for sale bananas were taste and texture, and for banana chips were taste and level of cracked chips.
The proposed strategies to improve product quality in the banana comodity supply chain were an increase ability
or skill in the production process for each actor (0.25), using standards in the product production process (0.22),
make a explicit contractual agreements between actors regarding product quality (0.21), establish a structur
