Barnana®,a pioneer in the natural food space for its unique upcycled banana and plantain-based snacks, released its newest product line, Plantain Tortilla Chips. The new chips will hit west coast markets in June 2020, and online via the "shop" page on Barnana.com and Amazon beginning July 1, with an expected national retail distribution by early fall. The new Plantain Tortilla Chips will come in two flavors, Himalayan Pink Salt and Lime & Sea Salt. Each bag contains golden brown chips made from seasoned ground plantains cooked in avocado oil for the perfect crunch to satisfy any salty craving.
Barnana is also revealing its redesigned packaging and logo created by internationally recognized Brazilian artist and illustrator, Speto. Known as one of the most talented graffiti artists in the world, Speto gained worldwide acclaim during the 2014 FIFA World Cup. His work has been exhibited in museums such as Palais de Tokyo in France, Museu Afro Brasil in São Paulo, and in several galleries in the United States and Europe.
The Barnana logo will now be accompanied by “Nana,” a whimsical, playful monkey created by Speto. Designed in his signature free-spirited style of street art, Speto created the Nana character to help bring awareness to Barnana’s important mission of reducing food waste and promoting regenerative agriculture in the Amazon.
Since Barnana was founded more than seven years ago, Barnana has saved over 100 million bananas from going to waste by upcycling “imperfect” fruit into delicious snacks. Helping catalyze a broader upcycling movement, Barnana is a founding member of the recently formed Upcycled Food Association (UFA). The association’s goal is to educate consumers about the critical climate benefits of reducing food waste and explaining the important difference between ‘upcycled’ and ‘recycled.’
