Imagine being a primary producer and having truck loads of produce unfit for sale, what are you to do with it? This was the dilemma of our  #RWA2018 QLD winner Krista Watkins when a cyclone wiped out her banana crops, a tragedy that contributed to the world-first banana flour company @NaturalEvolutions. Her next damsel in distress? Sweet Potatoes.  #WonderWatkins
