Organic is built on four main principles: HEALTH, ECOLOGY, FAIRNESS, and CARE. These fundamental values have been built into Jakana Foods products since it began in 1995. We live under the philosophy of providing all natural food products without any added chemicals, so by meeting the goals of Organic standards to begin with the care of the soil, protection of the environment, and to produce healthy products for the world, then we shall be doing our part.
Uganda has the 4th largest number of certified Organic farmers in the world, so more and more the world markets are coming to Uganda to meet the needs of their clients and customers. Inquiries for tropical fruit products come to Jakana Foods because of our focus on key fundamentals for trust, integrity, protection for the environment, and care for the health and well being of our customers, farmers, our employees, and our communities which we work in.
Our primary inputs are purchased directly from 100s of farmers from Luweero, Kayunga, Kangulumira, Nakaseke, Masaka, Soroti, and Ntungamo Districts.
If you are interested in a certain product, or working under a community supported agriculture (CSA) model, we can do that. Knowing exactly where your food comes from builds community and connects people in new ways as the world comes together to make it a better place than when we got here.
