the pineapple

The pineapple is a symbol of welcome, good cheer and warmth, stemming from a long-standing Caribbean Indian tradition of hanging pineapples outside their dwellings to welcome visitors.

Today the pineapple is the International Symbol of Hospitality—a welcome sign that is symbolic of the confidence clients place in the HSI team every day.

The pineapple represents the attitude and persona that we embody in our day-to-day practices.

The word pineapple is derived from when Spanish explorers called it “pina” because of the resemblance to a pine cone.

Pineapple propagation from seeds is rare. Usually, the top of a pineapple is planted in soil and a new fruit-producing plant will grow.

The pineapple is a compound fruit, which means it is made of many small fruits fused together.
