A lot of food-loving people would like to be able to “eat nothing but bananas,” and the National Banana Council is looking to get some of those people on board with the idea.
The council is currently looking for people to help it develop a “banana-friendly” menu that would serve a variety of different banana varieties and, most importantly, to include a variety pack to encourage people to buy a variety and to help keep prices low.
A portion of each sale would go to the National Bananas Foundation, which has launched the Banana Pledge, a program that rewards the best brands in the world with a $1,000 bounty on their next banana purchase.
“We’ve been in the banana business for about a quarter of a century,” said John Schoepfer, president of the National Bacon Council, in a press release.
“Our goal is to help all the companies we work with to make the banana more accessible and more affordable.”
The goal is for the goal to be reached by September 1.
The banana pledge has helped many banana companies to make changes to their banana menu, such as replacing banana slices with slices of whole-leaf banana, or switching to other banana varieties.
Other companies, such a Whole Foods and a couple of other companies that produce specialty banana products, have also implemented similar initiatives.
“In a lot of cases, they’ve gotten better,” Schoipfer said.
“It’s not just a taste thing.
They’ve been working on a banana menu for a long time.
There are a lot more banana flavors in the market than people realize.”
Schoips told The American Council on Science and Health that the goal of the program is to get people to purchase bananas, and he hopes the program will work for them.
“I think it’s a great way to get the message out there to the market that bananas are healthy and affordable and are healthy for you,” he said.
The National Banana Coalition has a list of participating companies and restaurants that they are targeting to receive $50,000 in donations, as well as to support the Banana Program.
They have set up a website, bananapledge.com, that they hope will reach as many people as possible.
For now, the goal is that the program gets a little more than half of the way, with the goal being reached by December 1.
“What we’re trying to do is get as many of our customers to take action and make a donation,” Schopfer said, according to the Council.
“If you see something that you think we should help with or want to do something for, please feel free to contact us.”
