Apeel Sciences develops low-cost, natural technologies to help to eliminate food spoilage, reduce water and energy use, and preserve natural ecosystems. Apeel's technological innovations are based on extracting organic molecules from agricultural byproducts. The molecules are then used to create water-based formulations that coat the surface of fresh produce, forming an ultra-thin natural barrier to camouflage more delicate crops and protect produce from external stressors. Apeel Sciences is committed to being a technological and environmental leader in the agricultural industry, enabling widespread, positive impacts through the development of high-performance pre- and post-harvest products and processes that conserve our precious natural resources and safeguard the Earth's delicate ecological balance.
Apeel sciences is backed by Silicon Valley venture capital firms Andreessen Horowitz, DBL Partners, Essex Capital, Tech Coast Angels and Upfront Ventures.
