Apeel Sciences

Apeel Sci­ences cre­ates prod­ucts from nat­ural plant extracts that allow grow­ers to reduce reliance on pes­ti­cides, increase pro­duce qual­ity, and pro­vide supe­rior shelf life.

In the US, the major­ity of our fresh water is con­sumed for irri­ga­tion while 40% of our fresh pro­duce is lost to spoilage before it can be used. This means that we are lit­er­ally “throw­ing away” a por­tion of our avail­able fresh­wa­ter sup­ply, not to men­tion the added neg­a­tive envi­ron­men­tal con­se­quences of pes­ti­cide usage asso­ci­ated with grow­ing the huge frac­tion of pro­duce that ulti­mately ends up in landfills.

Apeel’s inno­v­a­tive tech­nolo­gies pro­tect crops and help to sig­nif­i­cantly reduce spoilage, which in turn reduces water use, low­ers energy costs, and helps pre­serve nat­ural ecosys­tems. Using agri­cul­tural byproducts–parts of the plant that are nor­mally discarded–Apeel cre­ates prod­ucts that for­tify the sur­faces of fresh fruits and veg­eta­bles, form­ing an ultra-​​thin bar­rier that cam­ou­flages crops and shields pro­duce from both biotic and abi­otic stres­sors. Made from 100% plant mate­r­ial, Apeel’s pro­tec­tive for­mu­las are invis­i­ble, taste­less, edi­ble and durable.
