Save Money by Saving Bananas
DID YOU KNOW…
Up to 50% of bananas are rejected
by supermarkets because they are deemed “imperfect”. Approximately 38,000 hectors of production produces 190,000 tonnes of waste! Source:
That’s a heavy financial loss on the farmer.
Not only that, but bananas are the no. 1 wasted item at the supermarket. That’s also a financial loss for the retailer.
CREATING ORDER OUT OF CHAOS
Ipanema Valley creates a more equitable supply chain between everyone that comes into contact with bananas while also creating a positive environmental benefit in preventing food waste.
FULL CIRCLE OF POSITIVE IMPACT
We do this by buying these bananas from the farmer, giving them a profit and then converting this so called waste into a new source of food energy. The peels are used for fertilizer, fibre, flour or given to live stock. Nothing is wasted.
BRAZILIAN BANANA MASS
SUSTAINABLE SUPERFOOD AS A SOLUTION
TO FARMS & FAMILIES
By concentrating down the bananas into a nutrient dense flavorful banana mass, we are able to make products that give you a full serving of a banana and in turn extend the shelf life of the banana so it doesn’t go to waste in your home so you can save money as well. The typical household wastes 15% of its household food budget on bananas that spoil before their eaten.
Consider Ipanema Valley as a way to make a positive difference from the farm all the way to your table!
