Research topics: Value addition and commercialization of bananas in Kenya

Published by M Johnson on

We produce a lot of bananas in Kenya and we mostly only use them for cooking and or consumption as fruits when they ripen. There is very little value addition in especially trying to develop new banana based food products. Such value addition initiatives have potential to:

  1. Reduce post harvest banana losses which often occur due to lack of market
  2. Produce more nutritious and healthy food products
  3. Create employment for many farmers and food scientists
