Bananas are among the most widely consumed foods in the world, and are a major staple food crop for millions of people in developing countries. In most tropical countries unripe bananas are used for cooking. Cooking bananas are very similar to potatoes in taste and texture.
Export bananas are picked green, and then usually ripened in ripening rooms when they arrive in their country of destination.
By the time bananas make it into lunch bags, backpacks, and work bags, they are most likely in their ripest state: sweet and delicious, ready to enjoy. It doesn’t take much to squash and ruin a perfectly good ripe banana. There is nothing more dissapointing (ok, maybe there is) than opening your lunch bag to find a squishy mess inside. What is a banana lover to do? Get a Banana Guard!
Banana Guard was founded by three Canadian Emergency Room Doctors who found themselves extremely concerned about the fruitless amount of banana trauma and abuse taking place in the world. The Banana Guard was conceived and produced to alleviate this problem. You can now take your banana to work school or play secure in the knowledge that no harm will come to it.
