Just how useful is the banana? Very useful, according to Barnana: The company makes a variety of natural banana-based snacks that will undoubtedly become a favorite of yours.
History of Barnana
Modern banana farming is much more convenient than it used to be, but that doesn’t mean it's perfect. About 50% of bananas grown on farms go to waste because they don’t meet standards - they might be too mushy, small, or just be a bit too stained. Barnana was formed out of a desire to do something about this. Founder Caue Suplicy was raised on a strict macrobiotic diet in southern Brazil, and it gave him insight into just how powerful these fruits were. Wanting to make the most of them, Caue formed Barnana, inspired by his father’s practice of dehydrating his own bananas back in the 80s. Now, the Santa Monica-based company has become a premier provider of banana-based products.
Barnana is committed to spreading the word about the macrobiotic benefits of bananas, all while conducting a mission of sustainability. Barnana makes use of “reject” bananas, which can constitute over half of a single harvest, and puts them to use as ingredients in its snack products, thereby reducing waste. The company has upcycled over 85 million bananas as part of its mission to combat food waste in the U.S. and around the world. By treating the Earth as a finite resource, Barnana’s practices improve the world around us and contribute positively to other Nature.
