Colombian Banana Snacks Brand Reaches U.K., Czech Republic, UAE

March 13, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Loro Crisps, banana snacks made with bananas grown in Colombia, have been exported since November 2020 to the Czech Republic, the U.K., and the United Arab Emirates. The two Colombian entrepreneurs who created the snacks say their goal was to at least partially replace potato chips in U.K. supermarkets with a snack that featured “a Latin flavor.” The entrepreneurs were supported in their efforts to bring a healthy, vegetarian, and gluten-free snack to the rest of the world by ProColombia, which helped them find a supplier in the Urabá Antioqueño region that meets the standards required for export. The founders expect their Loro Crisps will soon reach Japan, and within five years, Canada, Spain, and Ireland. Future plans include making snacks with cassava or chontaduro (peach palm).
