Apeel Sciences

The quest to give food a longer shelf life begins in the lab, and Apeel Sciences is at the forefront, having developed an invisible, plant-based coating for fruit and vegetables that slows water loss due to oxidation. Its solution doubles and even triples the shelf life of food. After years of formulating, Apeel finally rolled out technology in 2018. Grocery stores began using Apeel solution on avocados and instantly saw results—some recorded a 10% sales lift. Up next are strawberries, citrus, asparagus, and other produce-aisle mainstays. For Apeel, the mission is a noble one: to significantly reduce food waste, which costs retailers an estimated $18 billion a year.
