With the chance to see boxes of freshly delivered bananas, in all their glory, at Spitalfields Market, have a chat with stallholders and find out what this trade is all about.
The networking event included a talk about the wholesale marketplace which accounts for 35% of all fresh produce sales.
Trends indicate that a BanaBay banana is more like to end up on a restaurant plate as food service channels are currently more dominant overtaking those of retail and greengrocery.
After a tour of one of London’s most established and important markets, there was a hearty breakfast followed by a discussion forum then it was back off to HQ in Birmingham.
Briony Dunmore, recently appointed Global Marketing Assistant for BanaBay, said:
“I really enjoyed the buzz of the market, networking with others in the trade and seeing our beautiful big bananas towards the end of the ‘plantation to plate’ supply chain.”
