Mangalore, Jun 16: In an effort to popularise jackfruit, its benefits, nutrition value and other facts, founder-CEO of Global Village Fruits Incorporated (GVFI) of United States, Anne Marie Ryu announced a 'Jackfruit revolution' in India and in the US on Saturday June 16.
Anne said, addressing to mediapersons at a press meet "We are working to create awareness about all the uses of this healthy and delicious fruit. One year ago there was virtually no knowledge of what jackfruit was in the US.”
She informed she began building the market for jackfruit in US, with the intention of introducing a range of jackfruit products across the US within the next five years she added.
The jackfruit revolution is a movement of social entrepreneurship to benefit producers, processors and consumers she said.
Further, she said that "To succeed in this revolution, I seek help from jackfruit lovers across India. I need help to increase awareness of what we can do with the jackfruit products and its quality supply especially dried jackfruit at this moment."
“I am working on a book on jackfruit that will include information on its history and nutritional benefits. Certain areas will be better for certain products but we have too little information to draw clear conclusions at this time”, she continued.
