What We Do

Functional Food Solutions​

Can we produce food that doesn't just avoid harm, but actively restores nature and reverses previous damage.

Regenerative food systems can ensure we're able to feed many generations to come and as food is part of nature, and nature is inherently regenerative - it can renew itself.


This way of thinking about food and nature is not new, smallholder farmers who predominantly indigenous populations have employed traditional ecological knowledge for centuries. Specific regenerative farming practices include no till, cover cropping, diversified cropping, silvopasture, and mixed cropping. Organic agriculture practices can overlap with these and promote healthy soils, ecosystems and people.

At Green Banana Food (GbF), we consider ourselves as food curators, and that’s why we adopted the ‘Edible Discovery’ innovation strategy.

Within Edible Discovery, we strive to align the food we eat with the natural heritage we depend on to live happily and healthy.

After a careful selection of each raw material, all of our products are crafted to perfection by adopting different food cultures such as pasta cultures from Italian regions, pastry techniques from France and UK. This combination of new & respecting old farm recipes, is at the centre of Gabanna Food Studio.
