Our mission is to transform healthy eating, farmers’ livelihoods, and humanity’s eco-footprint – for the better.

Annie founded Global Village Fruit in 2011 after learning that jackfruit is under-researched and underutilized on a global scale. The largest producer of the world’s jackfruit is the country of India, where 75% of the fruit goes to waste largely for lack of processing infrastructure, refrigerated supply chains, and connections between farmers and markets. That’s why Global Village Fruit is on the scene, building international supply chains. Knowing this wonderfruit would change the globe, Annie decided to brand The Jackfruit Company as the face of jackfruit foods in the US. We are now the #1 jackfruit brand in retail stores nationwide!
