This information may be out of date, as I think at least some of the data on this website is from 2013.
Filipinos reportedly have the highest per capita consumption, around 60kg/year, followed by Brazilians (similar number). But in many African countries such as Uganda, Rwanda and Cameroon, per capita consumption exceeds 200 kg of banana (all types including non-Cavendish and plantains). Especially in rural areas in these countries, banana can provide up to 25 percent of the daily calorie intake (FAO sources). According to some estimates, more than 100 billion bananas are consumed globally each year.

Even more banana facts where the above facts came from!
