Inspired by her mother and grandmother’s homemade jackfruit dishes in Kerala, Jack & Chill founder Nisha Menon decided to introduce the fruit to the UK.
Jack & Chill range of plant-based frozen foods uses less than 10 ingredients and the main ingredient, jackfruit, is sourced from local farmers in Kerala.
In 2019 Nisha Menon launched Jack & Chill jackfruit burgers, biryani and pulled jackfruit in Planet Organic and in several health food stores in the UK.
Jack & Chill is now available in Ireland, Australia, the Middle East and Iceland.
Jack & Chill founder Nisha pitched to investors at Food Tech Matters this April to raise more investment to further develop the brand.
The next Food Tech Matters event is from 29 – 30 November 2021. To register to pitch at the event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or register interest online here.
