WHO WE ARE:
Banza is on a mission to make nutritious food more accessible. Our first product, a delicious pasta made from chickpeas, is the fastest growing pasta brand in the country. In just five years we’ve gone from an idea to a product in 11,000+ stores, and today Banza is the #1 pasta brand in Whole Foods and Target. We’ve been named one of TIME’s 25 Best Inventions of the year, appeared on The Today Show and Good Morning America, and most importantly, brought a better pasta to millions of happy customers. Our sights are set on more than pasta night: we recently launched chickpea mac & cheese and chickpea rice, which are transforming mealtimes across the country. There’s more to come – join us!
