LONDON Dec 13: Launched in 2019 Jack & Chill is the 2nd brand of a family run business NIKASU who manufactures Indian Frozen Food for over 25 years. Their factories based in Kerala, India manufactures & export samosas, spring rolls, shredded coconut amongst other Indian food products.
“We launched Jack & Chill because I am really passionate about showing everyone how versatile Jackfruit can be. Having grown up in Kerala, 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.
Their current product range includes Jackfruit Burgers, Biryani & Pulled Jackfruit which is available to buy from over 500+ independent health stores incl Whole Foods, NISA, Revital etc. They also supply in bulk to several manufacturers & Food service customers.
“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”, said a press note.
“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, its ready in 5 minutes,” added the note.
During lockdown they launched their Recipe Book on Amazon to help people cook from home.
They are now rebranding & bringing on more meals in 2022. Keep your eyes peeled and for more news, follow them on Instagram or FB @jacknchillfoods & https://www.jackandchill.co.uk/
