Bananas: Bite-Sized Goodness from Sri Lanka

What's cuter than a banana? Give up? Easy: a baby banana.

Bananas are beloved worldwide for their sweet taste, nutritional content, and comic appearance. Seriously, Google a banana and have a look at it and tell us it's not funny.

Of course, one drawback of bananas is their tendency to get bruised or squashed. That's why we've created our dried raw, sun-dried Baby Bananas, so you can get the flavour and nutrition of everyone's favourite yellow fruit in a way that's convenient to you.

Fruity, aromatic, and sweet, our baby heirloom bananas are grown and dried using natural methods to preserve their flavour and goodness. We source them from Sri Lanka. The area is largely organic and is cultivated by the farmers who live there. Through organic cultivation, the local farmers make their own personal daily contribution to an environmentally friendly approach to nature.

Hygienic Processing: From Hand-Picked to Perfectly Packaged

The baby bananas are then gently hand-picked and dried. The processing is done with careful manual work and under highly hygienic conditions. This ensures that the dried organic bananas are of excellent quality. In their dried form, they taste different to fresh bananas – aromatic, intense and pleasantly soft.

Our modern facilities use a combination of eco-friendly pressure treatment and cutting-edge spectroscopy to check, clean, and select our products, guaranteeing premium quality in every pack. The whole process is done without the use of harmful artificial processing methods for sustainable snacking that's Right by Nature.

The Perfect Snack for an Active Lifestyle

Bananas are an amazing source of potassium, which can help with muscle cramping and nerve issues. They are also rich in vitamin B6, important in nervous system function. They're also packed with natural energy and very easy to digest, making them the perfect snack for an active lifestyle.
