More about us

The company was initiated in 2000 in Wageningen, the Netherlands. Since then, although our team membership has shifted and has moved to different parts of the world, our head office continues to remain in Wageningen. This part of our site provides more information about us: about our name and more details about some of our policies.

What's in a name?

The name is a tribute to the sprawling Banana hill area outside Nairobi in Kenya where our founding members have lived. Some describe it as an area of despair and crime. However, it is also a melting pot with a constant influx of people moving from the countryside to the city. Creativity and entrepreneurship abound. As do the beautiful undulating landscapes dominated by tea farms and small towns.
