Food, Beyond Calories

From the hills & valleys of Uganda to the mountains of Peru, we scour the world for the most unique and delicious ingredients.

But we're not just focused on texture & flavour, we're also committed to building a regenerative food system that's nature-positive, biodiverse, and farmer inclusive. We work directly with farmers and producers from all over the world, supporting local communities and preserving traditional farming practices.

Matooke highland banana
What is Matooke (Highland Banana)

Matooke is the regional name for the East African Highland banana (Musa acuminata Colla (AAA-EA) and an older subspecies of the wild banana species Musa acuminata. Matooke is the local name for a variety of this triploid banana cultivars originating from the African Great Lakes region and the fruit is mature & harvested green, peeled, and then cooked in pieces or mashed like potatoes.


Matooke is considered a “common property resource’ and is ecologically well adapted to the highland conditions often in an intercrop farming system for natural soil health. It is widely grown by a variety of producers, in terms of scale and specialisation.

The regenerative practices in most Matooke plantations create good soil nutrients, moisture, shed and mixed cropping, so these plantations have perfect symbiotic ecosystems creating a biodiverse landscape as plantations for miles across hills and valleys.

Regenerative Agriculture

We strive to cultivate regenerative agricultural practices that restore soil health, enhance biodiversity, and promote sustainable farming methods.


Biodiversity Conservation

We are dedicated to preserving and celebrating the rich diversity of our planet's natural resources, including the unique flavours, textures, and nutritional benefits found in biodiversity-rich foods.


Circular Food Practices

We source surplus produce from partner farmers and use imperfectly perfect fruits and veggies that don't make it to retail shelves. We promote circular food practices that minimise waste, increase resource efficiency, and foster a closed-loop food system that benefits everyone involved.
