Jungle is community for guests and the people behind the independent food scene.
Our mission? To build a 10x better way of discovering and experiencing all the great bakeries, restaurants, takeaways, wine bars, food trucks, pop-ups and dishes around you.
To help people find all the hidden gems, we've built a community of industry people only. Here, local sommeliers and baristas to share their favorite places, dishes on the independent food scene
So far, it's been a blast. Hundreds of industry people have joined and are actively adding new places. More than 500 cafés, bars, restaurants, takeaways and food trucks are already on the platform.
Now, we are building tools to help with marketing, building deep connections with guests and an internal community of all the chefs, waiters, mixologists, bakers and baristas.
Why do we do this?
Well, firstly because we seriously have a thing for the independent places of this world! We want to empower all the great places and people behind it.
Second of all, and we know this sounds like corporate BS of the smelliest calibre, but having worked with hundreds of places - we can only highlight how much positive effect these places have in thems of sustainability, the communities around them and the authentic experiences they connect us with.
Finally, we think there is a massive opportunity here. People need an alternative to the crowdsourced rating apps out there, and there are tens of millions of cool indie places out there.
Just as fine dining has the Michelin Guide, and global chains have their giant brands, we believe it's to get the independent food scene together in Jungle.
