A Year In Review - Top 5 Highlights of 2017

As 2018 is around the corner, we wanted to share with you some of our achievements this year. Admittedly, we had our fair share of obstacles - from canceled shipments to botched packaging prints - but we were able to overcome these together as a team and they provided an opportunity for us to become better at what we do.

Here are some of the highlights of the year:

  1. Grape Tree launch: 2017 started with a bang, with our jujube fruits launching into Grape Tree’s over 100 stores across the country. Looking for wholesome and natural foods with good value? Look no further than Grape Tree Foods – find your nearest shop here.
  2. Recipes: lovely recipes with the jujube fruits were created. Jujubes are incredibly versatile - have you tried them infused in tea, roasted with Brussel Sprouts, or baked in Banana Loaf yet?
  3. Ocado launch: another exciting milestone – jujube fruits and hickory nuts are now available to millions of shoppers who can enjoy their benefits and naturally sweet flavour. Shop your online grocery here.
  4. News mentions: jujube fruits were praised for their adaptogenic activities in the Daily Mail (adaptogens can help calm the mind and relieve stress); and were raved about as the hot new superfood by Evening Standard, Refinery29, Metro, Yahoo etc. Over 50 publications mentioned our jujube fruits in the last three months alone!
  5. Spirit of Christmas Show: thank you everyone for coming by our stand to say hello! Thousands of bags of jujubes were brought home to be enjoyed and shared. We attended over 10 shows this year and loved meeting every one of you. Hope to see you again in 2018! 

2017 was a truly remarkable year for Abakus Foods and we are working hard to make 2018 an even better one.

A huge thanks to our customers and supporters for being part of our journey. 

Happy holidays!
