With the aim to make Kerala’s beloved snack available all over the country, this MBA grad quit his job to start a banana chips business.

With Beyond Snacks, Manas Madhu’s venture has given banana chips a twist, earning him profits in crores.

The company acquires Kerala bananas from farmers across South Indian states. They are then cleaned, cut and cooked in pure oil.

“Today, a majority of our customers are from cities like Bengaluru, Mumbai, Pune, Mysore and Delhi. The products are available in more than 3,500 outlets in Mumbai and Pune,” says

Manas also became the first entrepreneur to bag a deal with two sharks – Aman Gupta and Ashneer Grover in Shark Tank  season 1.

Serving flavours like desi masala, peri peri, salt and black pepper, hot and sweet chilli, sour cream onion and parsley, and salted flavour, Manas has given a tasty twist to this traditional snack.

Beyond snacks are available to buy on platforms like Amazon, Big Basket and India Mart; as well as retail and supermarkets. Have you tried their snacks yet?
