Alright yes, gold-star to you, they are in fact just dried bananas, but there is a lot more to these juicy little fellas than meets the eye.
To get them here to New Zealand, we started working with and Samoa’s (a not-for-profit organisation working with over 250 small-scale farmers). Organically certified by WIBDI has been working with Samoan farmers to export organically certified Misiluki bananas to NZ since 2008. By partnering closely with Oxfam and WIBDI, we’ve been able to provide these Samoan farmers with a market for a product that currently has almost no economic value locally.
As well as being good for the growers, and in turn Samoa, there are plenty of documented health benefits for eating All Good’s organic dried banana chunks too.
Unlike banana chips, which are commonly deep fried, All Good’s banana chunks are naturally dried. Being made from the more sweeter-tasting Misiluki banana means that nothing else needs to be added; we’re talking no sugar, no sweetener, no preservative and no oil. The bananas are first peeled, then sliced and dried ripe.
All in all making our organic dried banana chunks good for the growers’ futures, as well as a tasty healthy sweet treat for you too.
