“Our fans continue to ask for more chicken options, and we’re excited to meet their needs with these three new additions,” said Annie Ryu, CEO and founder of Jack & Annie’s. “By using jackfruit as our #1 ingredient, we’re able to make foods that not only satisfy like meat, but that also are a good source of fiber and protein, lower in fat and calories than meat products, and simpler and less processed compared to other meat alternatives. Jackfruit has a naturally meaty texture, and also picks up flavors well, allowing for a versatile and delicious tasting experience.”

Jack & Annie’s new frozen foods, made from jackfruit and vegan-friendly ingredients, include:

  • Crispy Jack Patties: Perfectly crispy and lightly seasoned, these patties are great on a bun or all on their own.
  • Buffalo Jack Patties: Just the right amount of zesty flavor with hints of vinegar and butter make this buffalo patty crave-worthy.
  • Crispy Gluten-Free Jack Tenders: Whether dunked in your favorite sauce or enjoyed on their own, these tenders are a unique and delicious gluten-free and meatless option with no sacrifice required on taste or texture.

Demand for plant-based chicken options continues to rise, as a growing number of consumers explore a “flexitarian” diet, looking to reduce their meat consumption. Jack & Annie’s boldly stands out among other meat alternatives because its foods are made primarily from jackfruit, a naturally delicious and nutrient-dense plant that is known for its meaty texture and satisfying taste. The result is crave-worthy foods that are both delicious and good for the planet because jackfruit is a sustainable and regenerative crop.

Jack & Annie’s new foods are available now at grocers nationwide, including Sprouts, HEB, Wegmans, Publix, Giant, and Stop & Shop.

Jack & Annie’s, made by The Jackfruit Company and founded by Annie Ryu, is on a mission to create real, delicious foods that feature jackfruit, an underutilized crop that is one of the world’s most sustainable and regenerative plants, as the primary ingredient. Jack & Annie’s plant-based offerings are more than just a delicious alternative to meat, they are also naturally nutrient-dense, high in fiber and protein, and lower in calories, and have a simpler ingredient panel than other meatless products. From crispy jack nuggets to savory jack sausage patties, the Jack & Annie’s portfolio offers foods that are satisfying for meat eaters and plant-based eaters alike. Bite-by-bite, Jack & Annie’s and The Jackfruit Company are building a better planet, supporting farming communities in India by preventing jackfruit from going to waste, operating the largest global jackfruit supply chain, and providing over 1,700 farming families with 10-40% of their income.
