CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) — Officials in North Carolina’s largest
city are offering millions of dollars if banana giant Chiquita
Brands International relocates its headquarters from Ohio.

The Charlotte Observer reported Wednesday that Charlotte and
Mecklenburg County have each decided to offer
$1 million in incentives, with the state adding another $2 million.
The newspaper says its information comes from several people
familiar with the proposal after closed-door meetings this week of
the city council and county commissioners.

Chiquita also considered moving its headquarters from Cincinnati
in 2005, but stayed in Ohio.

Chiquita spokesman Ed Loyd says the company is evaluating sites
and is in talks with officials in Cincinnati, Charlotte, and other
locations.

The newspaper reports the average salary of the roughly 400
headquarters jobs would be more than $100,000.
