We are on a mission to eliminate food waste on organic banana farms. When fresh bananas have scuffs, are a little too ripe, or aren’t the perfect size - they are rejected for export outside of the country.
According to the World Resources Institute, about 56% of all food wasted in Latin America happens before ever reaching distribution. In a region where over 70% of the food that is produced is exported, this leaves a massive amount of bananas left behind to rot.
This is what has inspired us to upcycle those bananas and turn them into Barnana.
