Kadalys is our Blue Beauty Brand of the year. This brand is founded by Shirley Billot, who grow up in Martinique. Coming from this region, she has seen an opportunity in the banana export industry and through her vision and work, she is diverting tons of agri-waste into new innovative ingredients while creating a new biotech industry on this remote island. Her vision, persistence and innovations will transform the banana industry for decades to come.
Kadalys is more than a beauty brand, it is a manifestation of the blue economy, tapping the full value of what nature has to offer, with a social impact that creates jobs and opportunity as well as the advancement of an industry.
