Coronavirus has exposed major flaws and waste in America’s food supply system. Apeel Sciences is a company that’s been around for many years, and they might just be what we need to solve some of our food problems.
“37 million Americans experienced food insecurity in 2018, and that number appears set to soar with surging unemployment.”
Apeel Sciences wants to extend the shelf life of food by adding a “second skin” to produce.
Katy Perry has invested a substantial sum into the company.
“As the number of weekly grocery store trips per household has plunged from 2.3 to 1, shoppers began filling their carts differently, buying in bulk and preferring foods that will keep longer”
The Apeel Sciences solution uses organic materials.
