CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Charlotte will soon be getting hundreds of new high paying jobs as Chiquita Brands is planning to announce its headquarters is moving to Charlotte.

According to sources in North Carolina, the company is planning to announce the move Tuesday afternoon.

Chiquita is the successor to the United Fruit Company and is the leading distributor of bananas in the United States.

North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue and the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce have scheduled a 4 p.m. news conference for an economic development announcement.

Over the past couple months Charlotte has been stepping up its push to become the new headquarters for Chiquita from incentives to Twitter and merchandising.

Chiquita hinted around months ago that it might be looking to move. Its lease on its downtown Cincinnati headquarters runs out next year.

Luring the 400 high-paying jobs is considered a major coup for Charlotte.

Would not that be really racist?
