Turbana Plantain Chips are tapping into consumer demand for products that are not only better-for-them, but also better-for-others. The line of six flavors of plantain chips promises the same crunch and dippable durability of potato chips but with 30% less fat, no trans fat and zero cholesterol. They also are made from plantains that come from small, family-operated farms in Uraba, Columbia, which the company says make them a key ingredient in the development and infrastructure of the region. The company also says it supports its farmers by providing training, education and lending, and offering manufacturing jobs to locals – many of whom are windows and single-heads of households.
