Hello and welcome, from The Jackfruit Company!
I fell in love with jackfruit a few years ago in India. Since then, I’ve been learning everything I can about jack, spending countless hours picking, cooking, tasting, tasting again (and again, and again) loads of jackfruit—to share with you the most delicious, nutritious products this wonderful fruit has to offer.
I didn’t go to India looking for jackfruit, but I can’t imagine life if we hadn’t met. I arrived as a pre-med college student teaching community health workers to use a text-message reminder program. Once I understood the incredible potential of jackfruit, I decided to create The Jackfruit Company, to convert an underutilized natural resource (jackfruit) to healthy, satisfying meat alternatives, and income and opportunity for farming families.
The Jackfruit Company’s products are a result of the incredible focus, dedication, and roll-up-your-sleeves-and-climb-that-jackfruit-tree attitude, of our phenomenal team. I am extremely thankful for all of our partners and supporters, around the world. Together we have made jackfruit—usually difficult to find and prepare—easily accessible, for people seeking healthier food choices still with outstanding flavor.
BBQ Jackfruit sliders, Tex-Mex Jackfruit tacos, Curry Jackfruit with rice, and Teriyaki Jackfruit salad…
