Apeel Sciences is a California-based company that develops plant-derived products that help organic and conventional fresh food providers increase produce quality and shelf life, and dramatically reduce waste. The company’s product Edipeel is made from edible plant extracts and doubles the lifespan of harvested fruits and vegetables—without refrigeration. No plastic or artificial preservative is as effective as Edipeel at naturally slowing spoilage, which means that fruits and vegetables can now be allowed to fully ripen before they’re harvested so they are more nutritious and significantly better tasting. And you’re not having to throw out the strawberries, avocados and bananas that you just bought at the grocery store two days ago.
