A piece of paper can reduce global food waste. Low cost, compostable and infused only with organic spices, FRESHPAPER keeps produce fresh 2-4 times longer.

FRESHPAPERs are sheets of paper that are dropped into containers, boxes and bags of produce. By keeping food fresh from farm to fork in a scalable and sustainable way, while significantly reducing resource and energy costs, FRESHPAPER promises to positively impact the food economy and transform the lives of the 1.6 billion people who still lack access to refrigeration.

FRESHPAPER has spread from a single farmer’s market to farms, retailers and consumers in over 35 countries.

Simple ideas are often the most powerful.

How the Global Goals are addressed

Zero hunger

By naturally inhibiting bacterial and fungal growth, FRESHPAPER reports to extend the shelf life of fresh produce by 2-4 times, helping to reduce food waste and feed more with what we already produce.

Responsible consumption and production

FRESHPAPER is made with organic spices and is biodegradable, meaning that after it has been used to help preserve food naturally, FRESHPAPER can help to grow more produce.
