BanaBay supplies one container a week to Double D Trade a business based in Seattle, USA which exports fruit to China and Korea.
Chinese consumers are very enthusiastic about the mini bananas because of their handy portion size and it also means you can fit nearly double the number of bananas in a container.
For example, a standard container can take 1760 boxes of baby bananas stacked on pallets and up to 2,100 boxes without. This compares to 1,080 boxed conventional on pallets and 1,200 without.
BanaBay hopes the success of the trial shipments will lead to BanaBay becoming a key supplier of baby bananas to China.
