Best New Frozen Product – Finalist

The Jackfruit Company Jack and Annie’s Crispy Jack Nuggets

“This truly plant-forward meat substitute wonderfully dupes chicken nuggets with whole jackfruit as the first ingredient. The little ones will never know. While not organic, the farmer-direct supply chain impresses; and Jack and Annie’s has helped get 8,000 acres certified organic. The company focuses on harvesting from wild jack trees and hopes its creative line extensions create a market for the versatile vegan ingredient. Nearly 70% of jackfruit goes to waste because of underuse.”

Best New Meat Alternative or Dairy Alternative – Finalist

The Jackfruit Company Jack and Annie’s Savory Breakfast Jack Sausage Patties

“Overprocessing can be a challenge when trying to make plant-based alternatives for sausage. These sausage patties from Jack and Annie’s utilize jackfruit as a plant-forward, minimally processed option for making savory breakfast sandwiches. Jackfruit, a whole food that satisfies like meat, is the first ingredient in these patties. A sustainable, regenerative crop, the company supports 1,000 farming families with 10-40% of their income by buying jackfruit directly from them, and community support programs provide tools and cooking vessels to the farmers.”
