October is Vegetarian Month, and what better way to celebrate than with tasty Chiquita bananas? Our extra-delicious, healthy fruit are not only vegetarian, they are perfect for vegans too!
Our bananas are not only a top-quality fruit with a superior taste – we also lead our industry in caring for the environment, and we do our best to drive down our carbon footprint to play our part in fighting the climate emergency.
Everyone who cares about animal welfare will be pleased to know that we also do our best to carefully focus our environmental interventions to ensure the minimum impact upon nature and the creatures that live within it, and have undertaken important projects to improve the environment in the countries where we work.
Chiquita bananas are also great for everyone who is looking after their health, as they are packed with important vitamins (including vitamin C and B6) and minerals (potassium and magnesium), natural sugars and soluble fibre.
Here are some great Chiquita recipes that you can try out for Vegetarian Month:
Waffles are a great way to start the day, and this scrumptious recipe will leave you ready for anything! Featuring Chiquita bananas, flour, maple syrup and oat milk, they are also super-easy to make.
