To us, social responsibility and the lowest possible ecological footprint are a top priority. We see taking care of the health of the planet as implicit, not a choice. We care for our planet; we don’t do shortcuts. The earth provides and we let her do exactly that, without intervening where there is no need to. Everything used in the growing process is absorbed into the banana. That is why every step of the process is the most natural and honest, to ensure a 100% organic banana.
We can confidently say that we have implemented multiple practices to drastically reduce water waste in our growing process. Now we focus on eliminating all plastic from the ripening process and, fair pricing of the product. But hey, we’re not stopping there! There is always room for improvement, and together, we’re progressing towards a greener production every step of the way.
BETTER FOR THE PLANET
Bananas grown organically leave a smaller footprint on our planet. We skip the chemicals, choose for natural disease fighters like garlic and chili, and nourish the soil with natural fertilizers.
Our precision irrigation techniques tailor watering schedules to each plant’s needs, slashing water waste while ensuring optimal hydration. We currently invest in drip irrigation systems for a sustainable agriculture with less waste of water.
We’re ditching plastics throughout our chain, from farm to shelf. It’s a journey of creativity and innovation toward a plastic-free future.
Solar power fuels our banana growing, minimizing oil use and making our process cleaner and greener.
AGAINST FOOD WASTE
No banana left behind! Even the imperfect ones find purpose in smoothies, banana bread, and powering our retro Bionana van.
BETTER FOR THE FARMERS
We stick with our Dominican Republic farmers through thick and thin, fostering trust and stability in our relationships.
Inclusivity and women’s rights are non-negotiable on our farms.
We bridge the gap between minimum wage and living wage, ensuring fair compensation and upholding dignity in the workplace.
We’re committed to a poison-free work environment, prioritizing the safety and well-being of our farmers.
