Article

Annie Ryu was inspired to start the company after travelling to IndiaIndia to develop a maternal and childcare program with her brother. During her time in India she became intrigued by the Jackfruit tree and began researching its ecological potential, nutritional value, and potential to be included in food products internationally. She discovered that much of the fruit produced by jackfruit trees was not being used by locals throughout India and other regions of South, and South East Asia where the tree is commonly found. She also learned a jackfruit tree can produce up to two to three tons on jackfruit annually with little maintenance. From this experience, Ryu decided it was time for her to start a food company that could bring the Jackfruit, and products made using the Jackfruit, to a broader international market.
