about us

It all started in 1981 when Caue’s father, João, began dehydrating bananas from their backyard in Southern Brazil…

Barnana ® was founded in late 2012 by Caue Suplicy, Matt Clifford and Nik Ingersoll. They set out with the goal of creating a brand synonymous with the curved yellow fruit we all know and love, the banana.

Why bananas? Well, bananas aren’t just the most consumed fruit in the US, taste awesome and have innate nutrient benefits, but they are also the most wasted fruit.

Barnana ® is on a mission to end food waste on organic banana farms by upcycling the bananas that used to go to waste. Up to 20% of all bananas that are grown go to waste before ever reaching distribution. But why? Well, there are stringent export standards that leave the “imperfect” bananas without anyone to eat them so they get thrown away.

We’ve growing fast. After just few years in business, Barnana ® can be found in over 5,000 retailers nationwide in the US including Whole Foods, Safeway, Sprouts, Costco and many others. You can also find us in Japan, Canada and Australia.

Thinking weird and being a little different is built into The Company’s DNA. From our outlandish guerrilla marketing, tech focused environment and strong focus on brand - the party is just getting started.

Barnana ® is a privately held company with a little obsession for bananas. As a Certified B Corp, our culture is driven by passion. The work environment is fun, creative, brand-savvy, entrepreneurial, fast-paced, solutions-focused, irreverent but disciplined and team-oriented.

WE ARE BARNANA® and so are the thousands of brand advocates who eat and share our snacks every day.
