HOW OUR ADVENTURE STARTED

HOW OUR ADVENTURE STARTED

Hey, We are Manny and Sam (AKA the Jungle Chiefs) the brothers behind Jungle Fruits.

We're on a mission To inspire healthier communities by making superfruits more affordable, accessible and convenient for everyone.

Born and raised in the concrete jungles of South-London, we have always loved fruits.
So growing up as kids our mum would buy loads of fruit and veg and try to make sure we had our 5 a day.
And growing up as adults our mum would still treat us like kids, buy loads of fruit and still try to make sure we had our 5 a day.
But there was a big problem......we always wanted to eat in our own time which was usually when the fruit had gone off. Which meant more nagging of course from our mum.

The solution to all our problems was dried fruit! no more nagging from mum too.

The TASTE EXPLORER

We got even older and like everybody, led busy lives. 

Sam took some time out to volunteer in Madagascar and fell in love with their jungles, he couldn’t stop talking about it.

Madagascar is known for their exotic fruits, in particular, their lychees….. which we love!. But we still ran into the same problem we had when we were kids.

How could we eat this conveniently and on the go.

Trying to crack a coconut on the Central Line train got a bit awkward... So we set about finding a way to get our exotic fruit fix, capturing all it’s goodness, in a handy pack we can take anywhere; then it dawned on us...... dry them!

and – voila! – Jungle Fruits was created. 

Mums nagging now
started making sense

The world health Organisation found that low fruit and veg consumption can be attributed to 2.7 million deaths, deaths worldwide and is in the top 10 selected risk factors.

In 2017 only 29% of adults got their recommended 5 a day portions; this was even lower in children and amongst BAME communities in the UK. The main reasons people gave for low fruit consumption were affordability of fruit, convenience , wastage from fruits rotting and taste.

And Currently

And Currently

We are taking each day as it comes; getting people eating fruit.

We may be small but that doesn't mean we don't deeply care about our communities and the world.

Every little thing we can do to help has an impact so you may see us speak occasionally about causes that are resonate with us mainly around hunger and the current situations with our rainforests. If you ever do come across this please do share and show support whenever you can.

Thanks for taking the time to read our story and welcome to the jungle family.
