Currently around half of all food grown ends up in a landfill. And we will soon reach a critical point in our ability to feed the world. We believe rather than devoting more land, energy, and water resources to food production, the key to abundance is in the building blocks of plants.
Inspired by nature’s strategy for preservation, James and the Apeel Sciences team went to work building a barrier out of edible plant materials that would slow down the rate of spoilage.
Apeel Sciences was founded in 2012 with a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Today, Apeel Sciences has developed products for dozens of USDA Organic Certified and conventional produce categories, and the company works with partners ranging from smallholder farmers and local organic growers to the world’s largest food brands to make better quality, more sustainable produce possible.
