About Krista

Krista, a banana farmer from Walkamin, North Queensland has won international recognition for her innovative banana flour product that tackles food waste at its source – the farm gate.

Her business, Natural Evolution, takes fresh bananas grown on her plantation and turns the fruit into flour for consumer goods like pasta. In the eight years since, what started as a hobby for use by the family – especially husband Rob who suffered mild coeliac symptoms – has transformed into Natural Evolution, the first company in the world to commercially produce the rare gluten-free flour.

At this event, learn more about ASPIRE – the business-to-business circular economy platform.

This event has been made possible through the support of Department of Small Business Employment and Training as part of Queensland Small Business Month.
