Believe in Bambara (BiB) is a social enterprise devoted to commercializing the bambara bean. Bambara is a nutritious, underutilized, and climate-smart legume that thrives in the arid climates of its native Sub-Saharan Africa. Highly versatile, bambara functions in the same industrial capacity as soy. By capitalizing on the growing demand for plant-based proteins, BiB is offering global consumers and manufacturers an innovative and sustainable alternative to the plant-based protein sources currently available.
BiB gives manufacturers a sustainable alternative to the protein sources they’re currently using (soy, pea, almond) which are primarily being harvested as a monoculture, with heavy chemical inputs such as fertilizer and pesticide, and which have serious repercussions to the local communities such as chemical runoff, dead zones, and biodiversity loss
