Favourite product this month in the ‘Sweet Treats’ section, has to be:
Tropical Wholefoods organic fairtrade Chewy Banana Chips.

Here is some information on the producer:
Tropical Wholefoods Chewy Banana chips are sun dried in over 50 villages in Uganda, by women’s groups, co-operatives, and family groups. Tasty, versatile, great for lunches or just a mid-day snack.

The solar driers have been especially designed by Adam Brett of Tropical Wholefoods to enable village people to earn good money from sun drying excess fruits and vegetables. Some people owning solar driers have bought their driers outright. Others have been helped with loans from aid agencies such as the European Development Fund Micro-Projects Scheme (EDF) and the Agency for Co-operation and Research in Development (ACORD).

Tropical Wholefoods buy sun dried bananas at a fair price, guaranteeing prices and export markets as well as organising training and maintenance services to operators of solar driers, and where possible, helping people to get access to sources of soft finance and loan

The bananas are free from all preservatives and are extremely tasty having been dried almost immediately after harvesting.
