Annie Pushing Jack When

Hey there! I’m Annie. And this is the story of how I met Jack, or as the rest of the world
knows it, Jackfruit.

met Jack.

It all started
in India

at a street vendor’s stand. There was a huge, green plant that I’d never seen before—Jackfruit!

potential.

It was delicious and satisfying with a texture that was just like meat. Not to mention it was also high in fiber and low in calories.

Local farmers brought this easy-to-grow and drought-resistant plant to the market to support their livelihood and villages.

 

With it, I saw an opportunity for this downright tasty plant to make a difference in our health and the whole planet at large… if only it could get to the world.

 

I have never been afraid of a challenge, but this was a whole new level. I was a pre-med student with no knowledge or connections in the food industry.

I followed my heart and took the leap, knowing I’d have to “just figure it out” along the way.

LATER I STARTED

Based in Boulder, Colorado, we create craveable and satisfying foods with jackfruit as our first ingredient. It’s real food, from a real plant, grown on a tree by over 1,000 real farmers who benefit from its sale.
