Fiber Foods is an impact first company. We create economic, social and sustainable value for all stakeholders. We source our Jackfruit from agroforests from small farmers and their families in rural communities in East Africa. We guarantee them a fair price. By processing the jackfruit at regional hubs, we create jobs and add value that stays in the local economy.
Fiber Foods is a spin-off from "The Business Lab" that was founded in 2019 by Inez van Oord and Ineke Aquarius in Kampala with support of the Netherlands Embassy. The aim was to create a scalable gender friendly value chain together with the market. In co-creation with our processing partners:
- Zahra Food Industries Ltd
- Afyasili Fruits
- Jakana Foods
the dried jackfruit product was developed under technical guidance of Team Tastemakers.
This led in 2021 to the establishment of Fiber Foods in the Netherlands who introduced this African innovation to the Dutch market.
