Purely’s aim is to bring a revolution to the traditional snack-style by introducing global healthier options but with a great taste promise.

Hello Everyone! This is Team Purely.

We are on a mission to bring tastier, healthier and higher quality snacks to the UK, after discovering these delicious plantain chips in Ecuador.

Let us present first who we are! Our names are Stefania & Mark and we are the founders of Purely . Our passions in life include: travelling, business and sampling local delicacies. After visiting a number of banana plantations on a business trip to Ecuador we found ourselves sitting in a bar having a cold beer.  It was at that moment that both of us were introduced to the plantain chip. It was unlike anything we had tasted throughout our travels. Knowing that plantain chips would provide a more satisfying and healthier alternative to potato chips and many other traditional snacks popular back home, we both knew we had to develop a product that everyone here in the UK and globally would have access to.

With an extensive knowledge of South America and corporate backgrounds in food import and export, the Purely team are passionate about capturing the innocence of nature in their products - this means additives-free and preservative-free, ethically and sustainably sourced raw materials, and minimal processing of products.

What is plantain and why plantain chips?

You will be shocked to know how unhealthy traditional potato crisps are and how much we are consuming them. It's estimated that in Britain 6 billion packets of crisps a year are consumed, however healthy considerations are now playing a big role in the market.

 Our solution is an innovative chip, made entirely from a plantain , a savoury relative to the banana family, largely grown in South America.
