Plantain is a name chosen based on a folktale about death...

You'd better keep reading!

The folktale tells the story of how, long ago, humans needed to have some sort of concept of death or the world would become too populated...
 

 


SO we had to make a choice: to die like the moon which has no children, and is reborn alone every month...

OR to die like the banana tree which always creates little offspring but withers and dies after it births one bunch of fruit...

 


...We chose to die like the banana tree because we saw that living life without being able to share it with family and friends would be sad and meaningless...

We chose 'Plantain' because of it's more 'local flavour', that links our company to its birth place in the Caribbean. Also, plantains, are migrants like us! Having journeyed from different continents (Asia, Africa, Latin America) before they settled in our lands.
