Meet The Grower
Want to know where your food comes from? Well, here's the team that grows your food with a lot of love.
A big thank you from all our growers for supporting Taste Before Waste. This initiative stops our farmers from having to dump excess food helping to offset losses and reduce environmental impact.
Frank & Dianne Sciacca are the brains behind the Red Tip Banana. Their Ecoganics farming system uses nil insecticides on the soil and a reduction of fertiliser by more than 60% average industry standard.
Taste Before Waste was born through a sustainability project which began at Eco Bananas - with the aim to reduce food waste minimise farm losses, and reduce the environmental impact of rotting food.
This farm also supplies our organic limes & small volumes of red papaya.

Barry & Lyn Locke have been growing bananas for 42 years, planting their first bananas in June of 1977.

The Locke family were initially in the dairy industry from 1952, hand felling their blocks to built their house and dairy. Nowadays they're farming Red Tip Eco Bananas, and sending their banana seconds straight to you!
