OUR STORY AND MISSION
Together we can make a difference!
bananaq is not just your ordinary marketplace, we are a caring community where everybody matters. We believe that together we can do great things - for the businesses, for every household, for the environment, and most importantly, for those who are in need. No one is left behind.
bananaq traces its humble beginnings from its founders' quest to find a solution to food insecurity. Immersion to different cultures over the years served as an eye-opener to the striking contrast of food abundance and scarcity among different societies within Japan and the rest of the world. This triggered a desire to minimize food waste and get as much food as possible in the table of people and communities in need.
bananaq is a food E-commerce app to reduce food waste where all foods are gathered.
We are looking for more registrations of food business operators.
