I have a few missions that need me to export pineapples and fish, but I have a cannery that takes them in to produced canned food. How do I fulfill those requests?

    Fire everyone at the cannery and close those positions? Commented Sep 2, 2011 at 1:35
  • eww, that's not a good idea since I rely on them for my primary source of income :(

  • Ok then how about you increase pineapple and fish production to the point where the cannery can't keep up? Commented Sep 2, 2011 at 1:37
  • not possible, seems like they have an unlimited storage capacity, or at least exceedingly high. I've already pretty much saturated my island with all possible good locations for fish and pineapple and my cannery's out pacing them.

  • Shift income to another export while you shut down the cannery? Commented Sep 2, 2011 at 1:49

Well I don't know how I would prove that it was the raw resource not the processed resource being exported if I tried to outpace the factory, so I'll just suggest the most obvious solution.

Shut down the factory. It may be painful, but you should be able to shift income to other exports for a while.

enter image description here

As you can see, the factory has produced nothing in at least 1 year, and I'm still successfully exporting Tobacco. $11,822 worth, to be exact.

  • To prove it, get a quest to export tobacco and try to fulfill it while you have a cigar factory built, but shut down. See if it works.

  • @yx_ It works. Please see my updated answer. Commented Sep 10, 2011 at 3:36

To export pineapple create a cannery next to the pineapple farms as well as build a teamstars office next to the cannery.

  • The question is to export pineapple instead of canned pineapple. They're trying not to can the pineapples. (Or rather, to can something else instead of pineapples.) Commented Jan 29, 2013 at 23:02

you can fire all of the workers in the factory which spends the resources you want to export

    Did you have any source for this? or it's just experience. If is self-experience is not a problem, just wondering if there are SS, videos or links.
