Janabanana is on a mission to provide simple, healthy food and women’s empowerment through the power of the world’s favorite fruit: bananas. Seeking to create a great-tasting range of gluten free health food products and fruit snacks, founder JanaLopes was inspired by the utility of green bananas — a common commodity used to eradicate malnutrition among kids and provide an excellent source of fiber and energy for tackling the day. Combined with her many years of experience and in-depth knowledge of Brazilian fruit extracts and her passion to create a super snack, Janabanana was born.
This Latina-owned business is also the founder of The JanaBanana project, designed to increase and sustain young women’s participation in sport and physical activity, enhancing some of Brazil’s most disadvantaged communities. Together with the community and local government members, JanaBanana is committed to promoting sports for disadvantaged young women.
