Organic Dried Pineapple (1kg)

This aromatic and fruity "Cayenne lisse"  variety of  pineapple has a sweet and slightly sour taste.

No added sugar or artificial additives. The pieces of the pineapple come in different shades, but this is a natural irregularity. Cut into bite-size pieces and can be easily separated.

Harvested in Togo.

Like us, you probably want more equity, more sustainability, and more quality at affordable prices. That’s why we have teamed up with gebana to change the rules of the game: they trade differently, you buy differently. This is how we all make it work:

  • gebana only harvest and deliver fruit when it is ripe. 
  • The taste is what counts above all; meaningless standards such as size and colour are of no concern.
  • gebana sell in large packages that come directly from the country of origin. This is more efficient, reducing not only waste but also food miles.
  • You, the customer, buy in larger quantities. By receiving large packages directly from the producers you are helping to reduce the carbon footprint of your purchase, with shorter transport routes, lower emissions and less packaging. And you can always share the contents of bulk packages with friends and family.
  • We continue to strive to keep getting better at doing business socially and ecologically and change global trade in favour or farming families, local economies and the environment – it doesn’t stop at organic and fair trade! 
  • We help small scale organic farmers from the South to sell their produce in Western Europe.
  • No preservatives, no wastage, and incredible taste – you won’t look back!

‘gebana provides us with support for organic cultivation. This is important, because thanks to being organic we get more money for our fruit. So through mango production I can cover the costs of my family.’ Abdoulaye Coulibaly, Koua, Burkina Faso.

Storage:  Store dried produce in an air-tight container to keep the fruit fresh.


About the farmers: gebana has been working closely with SE.TRA.PAL for 10 years, a small company who were the first to dry organically grown pineapples in Togo.  The elaborate cutting and drying of the fruit now generates income for over 300 farming families and 50 employees in the south of Togo.


About gebana: Global Farmers' Market is a new partnership with gebana to supply organic produce direct from farmers in poor countries. gebana was founded in Switzerland in 1998 with the aim of linking social and ecological values to economic sustainability. They established supply chains and partner companies were formed in Brazil, Burkina Faso, Tunisia, Turkey, Togo and Benin to make it easier for them to link to local farmers. They enable small scale organic farmers from the South to sell their produce in Western Europe. It hasn’t been an easy ride and one of the ways that has made gebana distinctive has been its willingness to take risks. gebana has high standards for social justice and sustainability. It works with external accreditation but recognises that whilst clear and strict standards are important, their implementation is often laborious, bureaucratic and expensive. They have developed their own organic and fairtrade standards whilst recognising the needs and disadvantages of small-scale farmers.


Until now gebana has only operated in Austria, Switzerland and Germany. Most of their organic farmers produce more than they can sell so we are very excited to become a distributor. They share many of this Shop's core aims, fostering sustainable development across the world whilst protecting the environment for future generations.


Their produce is organically farmed and then shipped via land or sea to limit carbon emissions.
