Edible and natural biomaterial coating
that extends shelf life of perishable foods

Our biopolymer coating is completely natural. It acts as a biodegradable protective shield that reduces the exchange of gases and water vapor, which are the key decay mechanisms affecting perishable food.
This is an environmentally friendly solution to harmful pesticides and wax coatings.

In addition to it’s natural benefits, our coatings are completely edible, invisible and odorless. It will be like plucking fresh fruit and vegetables straight from the source.
