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 started out under the name, 
"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. We did so in co-creation with our supplying and processing partners.

The first dried jackfruit product was developed under technical guidance of Team Tastemakers.
