Over the past few years there's been a huge rise in plant-based meat consumption whether it be for health or environmental reasons. In order to meet the consumers expectation, many products can end up being ultra-processed in an effort to mimic the texture and flavour of meat, fish or egg.
"We launched Jack & Chill because I am really passionate about showing everyone how versatile Jackfruit can be. Having grown up in Kerala, India, I have eaten jackfruit in various forms through my mum's and grandmum's recipes." Says Nisha Menon, Director of Nikasu UK & Founder of Jack & Chill.
"We are not looking to mimic meat with our Jackfruit, but to show you how to include this healthy, sustainable plant based ingredient in your diet naturally.
Ultra processed food with artificial ingredients damages your health long term. We only use ingredients that you recognize and can pronounce. And people love the fact that we have created such clean label products that are authentic to my Indian roots.
Ours is the only Burger in the market that doesn't use artificial stabilisers like methyl cellulose. Instead, we use chickpea flour for binding. Our Biryani is so authentic your kitchen smells of Indian flavours when you heat them up and the best part is, it's ready in 5 minutes"
Jack & Chill's Jackfruit is sourced from the local farms and households in Nisha's hometown of Kerala, where they are ethically supporting the farming and producing families by providing additional income. Jack & Chill are also reducing wastage, as their ingredients are sourced and processed to order, after which it is immediately frozen to preserve all the delicious nutrients.
The current Jack & Chill product range includes Jackfruit Burgers, Biryani & Pulled Jackfruit which is available to buy from over 500+ independent health stores including Whole Foods, Nisa and Revital. They also supply in bulk to several manufacturers & Food service customers.
