What people are saying about Piñatex

  • "Piñatex is one of those rare products of design thinking that hits all the sustainability buttons at once: it is a material that is completely cradle to cradle, it substitutes leather that has a very heavy environmental and welfare impact, and it brings new income streams to subsistence farmers, allowing them to fully utilise their crops. The implementation of Piñatex will have far-reaching societal and environmental benefits."

    Clare Brass, Head of SustainRCA
  • “I have worked with Ananas Anam for over 5 years and helped to develop their scientific understanding of their product. I have always felt that they are keen to develop the knowledge and understanding that science can bring to the development of a product. I have no doubt that Piñatex is a worthy product and the new developments will have a sound scientific basis.”
