Believe in Bambara The most sustainable plant-based protein source.

Believe in Bambara (BiB) is a supplier of the bambara bean, one of the most climate-smart plant-based proteins. Indigenous to Sub-Saharan Africa, the bambara bean thrives in arid, drought-ridden environments, and requires no chemical inputs such as fertilizer or pesticide.

BiB sources the bambara bean, a climate-smart and underutilized legume, directly from networks of smallholder women’s farming cooperatives in its native Sub-Saharan Africa. This contract farming arrangement provides the farming cooperatives with a reliable buyer for their beans, a secure source of supplemental income at a premium, and access to the global marketplace for the first time.

For manufacturers, BiB offers a sustainable alternative to the protein sources they’re currently using which are frequently being harvested as a monoculture, with GM seeds requiring heavy chemical inputs, and which have serious repercussions to the local communities such as chemical runoff, dead zones, and biodiversity loss.
