Sustainable Gut Health: Upcycling Bananas for Sustainability

Did you know as many as 30% of Australian bananas end up being discarded when they are not accepted by the major Supermarkets due to minor imperfections?

Sustainability is Key

In a world grappling with the urgent need for sustainable practices, addressing food waste emerges as a paramount concern.

By harnessing the potential of these bananas, Banana Feeds Australia is fostering a culture of sustainability and resourcefulness within the banana industry.

Green bananas represent more than just a tasty snack for our favourite companion or athlete, they are a nutritional powerhouse, packed with essential vitamins, minerals and fibre! Despite their versatility, a significant portion of bananas never make it to consumers tables due to superficial blemishes. The repercussions of this waste are multifaceted.

We can all help to Reduce Environmental Burden

Fortunately, at Banana Feeds Australia, we’ve come up with an innovative way to upcycle this perfect fruit. By drying the green bananas for use in our leading brand B-Complete, we are not only able to harness the complete nutritional value of the fruit for animal consumption, we are also able to mitigate the environmental burden associated with their unnecessary disposal.

Upcycling surplus bananas contributes to a circular economy, wherein resources are utilised efficiently, and waste is minimised. When we can redirect these bananas towards productive avenues, we also conserve valuable resources such as water and energy.

Supporting Aussie Farmers

Furthermore, we are proud to be able to support the local farmers who supply our fruit, by fostering economic resilience within the agriculture sector and providing a secondary income stream that did not previously exist.

At Banana Feeds, we believe that by harnessing the potential of green bananas, we can foster a more sustainable food system that is beneficial for all stakeholders.

It’s our mission to reduce waste in the agriculture industry, and with your help, we know we can!
