Who Benefits

Restaurants and institutions

Restaurants and institutions are trending toward more fresh, healthy ingredients on their menus. This meets that demand perfectly. Local produce is processed in a way that keeps up to 98% of their antioxidants and nutrients. There are no added preservatives or sweeteners. Products can also be custom designed for institutions like hospitals. Our products are fresher and have more flavor than the alternatives. There are no sugar or preservatives added. This makes local fruits and vegetables available all year. This also meets the demand for higher food quality and improved food safety.

Schools

Childhood obesity has more than tripled in the past 30 years. In 1980 obesity among children aged 6 to 11 was 6.5%, in 2008 it reached 19.6%.1 These statistics are alarming. Our goal is to make it more affordable and accessible for schools to provide more fresh fruit and vegetables. Our products are prepared without artificial sweeteners or preservatives and retain up to 98% of the antioxidants and nutrients from the produce. Additionally, the majority of fresh produce comes from local farms.

Military

One of the biggest challenges for the military is providing adequate nutrition, especially fiber, to soldiers in the field. Our products will supply them with more fiber without any added preservatives or additives. Increasing fresh fruits and vegetables on our soldiers' plates will not only improve digestion, but will taste better than what comes from a can.

Benefits to all

  • No refrigeration is needed. These products are stored in dry storage up to a year, which costs the restaurant less.
  • Produce comes in bags from 5 lbs to 1 ton. Elimination of cans save time in opening, waste, and shipping as well as dumpster space in discarding packaging.
