Jack's journey

So, where’s Jack now?

After winning Impact Hub’s Business Model Challenge last December 2017, Jack’s journey has been a rollercoaster trip. Working closely with the most exciting food innovators, we finalised the product development. We are setting up the sustainable value chain from South-East Asia, talking to small scale organic farmers and local communities. Potential collaborations with Marqt, Nature’s Pride and Woerner Agri are currently explored. We are talking to packagers & designers & food technology experts & and loads more..

However, we need your support to kickstart our social business and join Jack in his amazing journey from Asia to Amsterdam.

In collaboration with Crowd About Now, we launch our crowdfund campaign end of May 2018 to finance the production setup, to set up the value chain, to involve local farmers and communities and to pre-fund the first batch of products.

We envision you, our health conscious community & impact makers, to have the first Meet & Greet with Jack.

Ask Jack

He grows along the equator and is merely found in South-East Asia. Did you know that jackfruit is the biggest fruit in the world, grows very quickly on trees, does not require pesticides & chemicals and needs very little water.

We envision the revolutionary jackfruit as thé meat replacement of the future. Picture this: a healthy meat alternative but with the same texture as tender pork.

High on calcium, fibers and potassium. Low in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium. It is also a good source of Vitamin C and Manganese. Read more here.

Create job opportunities. Empower and educate local communities. Build an inclusive business. Love Mother Earth.

Improve personal health. Reduce carbon footprint. Influence consumer behaviour. Love Mother Earth.

We see a huge market potential just by looking at the main trends (like consumers with limited time searching for new, healthy and easy going dishes). Did you know that 43% of the Dutch eat less meat than 5 years ago!

You can meet Jack in the supermarket, in restaurants and at events and festivals by end of summer 2018.

The mouthwatering recipes are tailor made & designed by renowned chef Simon Jongenotter of New Earth Cooking and Food Creative Edwin Sander.
