Our pastas are a blend of green bananas with pulses, legumes (beans), and vegetables like carrots, beetroot and more to give you good stuff like fibres, vitamins, & minerals that your body needs to be healthy and full of energy. Pasta made from green bananas tastes just as good as its wheat counterparts, so you can use it in all your favourite pasta dishes.
All our green bananas are sourced from local, small-scale farmers in Uganda. There, traditional banana farming is always both organic and grown with respect for the environment & soil. Our selected farmers always use traditional farming methods, and by investing part of our profit into capacity building programs, we will help them remain sustainable while producing more. Food security is also very important to us, so we make sure to monitor local food needs in the areas where our raw materials are sourced.
We partner directly with the local farmers in Uganda who produce the green bananas, pulses, & legumes that go into our products. By partnering with them, we know we’re getting a high quality product made using organic & sustainable farming practices, and in return, they get a higher price for their crops. What’s more, 5% of our profit goes into an investment fund so that farmers and the local community can access low-interest loans that enable them to improve their farming practices & create entrepreneurial opportunities for themselves (through increasing own capacity in entrepreneurship, agribusiness, or accessing higher value product potential by pre-drying). Simply put, you always get high quality and they get opportunities to improve & diversity their income.

The pasta dishes I make are not traditional. I love experimenting & making different fusions of flavors. One of my favorite pasta dishes to make is fusilli with chicken, mushrooms, & cream sauce!
Because I’m a fan of natural foods, I love experimenting with vegan twists on old favorites. That’s why my favorite pasta dish is vegan shells ‘n cheese, made with eggplant!
