Thinking of adding more meatless dishes to your menu to satisfy vegetarians? Think bigger! More people are trying to find ways to eat less meat while still enjoying foods they love. Case in point, jackfruit and jack & annie’s products are proven to also attract vegans, omnivores, college students, and a broad range of consumers – especially those under age 35. See our list below for all the kinds of “eaters” out there. Plus, today there are several elite athletes who successfully compete and win while eating a plant-based diet including tennis player Venus Williams and ultramarathoner Scott Jurek. They proudly talk about the importance of their plant-based diets and they are influencing a whole new generation.
Whether you add jack & annie’s tastes-like-chicken-but-isn’t-chicken nuggets to your menu, work our plant-based meatballs into your pasta dishes, add our vegan sausage links to your breakfast fare or use jackfruit as your key ingredient for your own creations, you’ll be serving up what more people are hungry for. And all of our products are whole plant, not just plant-based, so we don’t have a list of “made in a lab” ingredients and we are always Vegan and Dairy Free (not all plant-based options are.)
So, who’s eating what? (And, yep, we appeal to all of them.)
