There are approximately 30 members in our Banana Processing Product Community Enterprise in Thung Aor Village.
“What makes our products unique is the crispiness and diverse flavorings that we offer. We take pride in our secret frying technique so each slice is the perfect level of crispiness.” – Banana Processing Community Enterprise leader
The Banana Processing Community Enterprise sells two products: seasoned banana chips (salt, honey, paprika, and barbecue flavors) and fried banana chips. There are approximately 30 members from the village within the Banana Processing Product Community Enterprise in Thung Aor Village. The production process is straight forward and simple. Each member works according to their skillsets which includes : sorting, washing, peeling, slicing, frying, drying, and packaging the products before sending them off. The process begins by each banana being peeled off by the team of ‘banana peelers’ ranging from retired elders, unemployed workers, and students who want to earn extra income. The peeled bananas are then passed on to the ‘fruit processing master’ who carefully peels the bananas into thin pieces with a fruit knife.
