Now we’d like you to get to know our amazing team of growers.
In this blog we’re looking at the ever popular dried banana, so you get to meet our banana grower Paul and find out a bit more about what happens behind the scenes.

We asked Paul a few questions about his farm and working with Gin Gin & Dry.
