Meet Don Jorge: The Grower Behind Our Plantains

donjorgeagudelo

Our plantain chips wouldn’t be possible without the farmers who grow plantains in the Colombian region of Quindío. If you’re anything like us, you like to learn about who’s behind the food you eat, so occasionally we’ll bring you stories of the people who help make our products a reality.

Don Jorge Agudelo owns the farm where all the plantains used for our snacks grow. He’s 80 and has been growing plantains for 50 years. Meet him in this video and watch him show us how to plant a plantain tree.
