Busta's greatBanana Bake Off

A BIG thank you to all that have entered. The competition has now closed but please carry on saving the bananas!

Around 160 million bananas are wasted every year by British families! So many ripe bananas are thrown out, even when they are still good to eat.

Schools You Can Help!

Schools can take part in Busta’s Great Banana Bake Off by making yummy treats from ripe and speckled bananas, to save them from going in the bin! Families taking part can nominate their school when they report how many bananas they have saved to add to their school’s total too. The school with the most bananas saved, will win the Bake Off!

Children and families can take part by turning over-ripe bananas into tasty treats and sending us a piccy of their culinary creations. All families that take part will receive a special Bake Off certificate and will be in with a chance to win fun banana prizes!
