Eliminate food waste and make fresh food accessible to all

From the fruit in your fridge to our planet at large, we’re driving positive change by building a better fresh food ecosystem.
Our vision

A world where everyone has the food they need and none of it goes to waste

People need access to fresh food to live happy and healthy lives, but one-third of what we grow goes uneaten. We’re working to fix that.

Sustainability

Eliminating food waste is only the beginning

By building technology to reduce food waste, we also cut back on water use and carbon emissions throughout the fresh supply chain. We’re proud to contribute to making our world more sustainable, all while delivering business impact for our customers.
