Helping the world waste less
Globally, about 45% of fruits and vegetables get wasted while 70% fresh water is consumed for agriculture, and it accounts for 1/4 of GHG emissions. Extension of shelf-life brings number of advantages such as direct positive climate impact by reducing carbon emissions and pollutions caused by growing, transportation, increasing energy saving through value chain, reduction of inventories and simply ensuring more food reaches people.
Saveggy’s bio-based edible vegan coating extends the shelf life of fresh fruits and vegetables and replaces plastic packaging. It is easily applied by using dipping or spraying methods after the harvest.
