This weekend, Barnana will launch two excitingly delicious products,

Coconut Chewy Banana Bites and Peanut Butter Chewy Banana Bites, at

the Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, CA (March 7-9). The Natural

Products Expo West is the leading trade show in the natural, organic,

and healthy products industry. Over 3,000 exhibitors will present to

an estimated 58,000 industry professionals. Barnana will be exhibiting

at Booth 2301.

With their Series B funding round of $1MM just closed, Barnana also

plans to expand their footprint into new markets. Investment included

current and new investors by way of industry veterans, angels, and

strategics, including V3 Capital Partners, Finn Capital Partners, and

Presence Sales and Marketing.

Barnana has already wooed a growing cult following with its non-GMO,

gluten-free Banana Bites, and the nation's finer grocers are falling

in love with Barnana too! Available now at select Whole Foods

locations, Barnana will hit their shelves nationwide in June. Also

added to their growing national list are Safeway stores and over a

hundred Sprouts Farmers Market stores to come in March.

An alternative to traditional snacks, Barnana is pioneering the use of

the banana's naturally occurring nutritional content. Grown in soil

alive with nutrients and free of chemicals, the way nature intended,

Barnana has no additives or no preservatives and is naturally sweet.

Barnana Original Chewy Banana Bites are organic, gluten free, non-GMO,

vegan, raw, and kosher. These partially dehydrated bananas are soft

and chewy and taste like fresh banana bread. With only one ingredient,

pure organic banana, Barnana is an exceptional source of potassium and

fiber, has over 20 vitamins and minerals, is always non-GMO, and is

made from nature. Their delicious Organic Chocolate Chewy Banana Bites

are covered in 54% organic cacao, which contains the beneficial

flavonoids of dark chocolate.
