In 2021, Barnana deepened our commitment to organic farmers and producers by acquiring our Latin American supply and operations chain. This ensures that the people we rely on – and who rely on us – can count on us far into the future.
We took this step to cement a long and fruitful partnership built on mutual respect and shared values. We are excited about the expertise, skills and passion every person on our global Barnana team brings to our shared mission.
Looking ahead, that mission will continue unabated – all of us working in one company dedicated to putting people and the planet first.
What’s a B Corp?
Barnana is proud to be a certified B Corp company that strives every day to make business a force for good! Good for the people who grow and produce our delicious snacks, good for the environment, and good for you, our amazing Barnana community.
Certified B Corps work toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities and the creation of more good jobs. It just so happens that we believe in all of those things!
The bottom line is that B Corp companies put purpose before profit. Barnana’s founding purpose was to take wholesome organic bananas that would have been wasted and turn them into super healthy snacks you can bring with you anywhere. We’ve supported indigenous farmers, regenerative farming and sustainable practices every step of the way.
As our product line has grown, we’ve never lost sight of what matters most to us and our customers. We work hard to live up to our ideals, and we rep our B Corp badge of honor on ALL of our packaging because it shows that we “walk the walk” when it comes to our guiding purpose, our amazing people and our precious planet.

The journey our organic bananas and plantains make from small farms in Latin America to the shelves of your favorite grocery store is a testament to the power of partnership and commitment.
From the moment Barnana’s founders discovered that perfectly good bananas were going to waste because local farmers couldn’t always find buyers willing to go the extra mile (often literally), we knew what our mission had to be:
That’s the promise we made to ourselves and our partners. And we’re sticking to it.
Upcycling is so much a part of who we are and what we do that sometimes we forget that it’s not necessarily part of everyone else’s every-day life. With that in mind, here’s a quick primer on what upcycling is all about here at Barnana.
