Avocados that last twice as long, reducing waste and creating abundance. This is food gone good.

Apeel is a family of plant-derived coatings that fresh food growers, suppliers, and retailers use to keep produce fresh. Produce with Apeel stays fresh two to three times longer, which promotes more sustainable growing practices, better quality food, and less food waste for everyone. For growers, suppliers, and retailers, Apeel is the only postharvest solution that creates an optimal microclimate inside every piece of produce, which leads to extended shelf life and transportability — with reduced reliance on refrigeration and controlled atmosphere.

Apeel is working with all different sized players in the food system, big and small.  While these specific avocados are imported by a large packer from Mexico, they are actually SOURCED from what is called a “grower’s network,” which is a network of hundreds of small-scale farms who actually grow the fruit and sell it to the packer.  The packer simply makes it possible to get you the fruit as fresh and quickly as possible.

The Food Project’s mission is to create a thoughtful and productive community of youth and adults from diverse backgrounds who work together to build a sustainable food system. Our community produces healthy food for residents of the city and suburbs, provides youth leadership opportunities, and inspires and supports others to create change in their own communities.

When produce is fresh, it not only looks better but more importantly it tastes better and contains a higher density of nutrients. Apeel makes it possible for growers to optimize their practices and avoid harvesting before ripeness, allowing fruits and vegetables to develop full quality (from nutrition and delicious flavor to appearance and texture) before they embark on the journey to the grocery store.

Apeel is made of plant-derived materials — lipids and glycerolipids — that exist in the peels, seeds, and pulp of all the fruits and vegetables we already eat.

Apeel is not GMO. Our products are not derived from genetically engineered plant material.

Allergic responses can be triggered when the protein from an allergenic source is present in a food product. Apeel products are not protein-based, but rather lipid-based — and lipids are not a source of regulated allergens. We also conduct testing to confirm the absence of regulated allergens. That said, if you have a known allergy or sensitivity to a fruit or vegetable, you should continue to avoid it whether or not it is an Apeel fruit or vegetable.

Yes! Apeel is edible, safe to eat, and fully compliant with all U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulations. Because Apeel is made of widely used plant-derived materials — lipids and glycerolipids — that are commonly found in foods, it is designated FDA GRAS or “Generally Recognized As Safe.”

The Story Behind Apeel Avocados

Currently, over 40% of all food grown goes to waste. It’s a huge number, especially considering that, with our current rate of population growth, there won’t be enough food to feed the planet in the next 50 years. This is an issue that the team at Apeel knew they had to solve.   

The solution?  Use nature to protect nature

Apeel offers plant-based protection to lock in moisture and keep out oxygen, two factors that lead to spoilage.  This means these avocados will last you two times longer when ripe than your traditional avocado.  This also means Apeel can offer the entire tree, including avocados you don't normally see in the grocery store, such as these amazing snackables and big guys that make enough guacamole for a family of five.

And with every purchase, Apeel is donating $1 to The Food Project, an incredible non-profit that uses sustainable agriculture to support local food systems, youth and strong communities.

Apeel is food gone good.

Gods customer service!

Due to the weather, my order arrived too late for me to enjoy at its peak. After emailing the customer service, they promptly suggested to ship me another box! Can’t wait for their arrival and much appreciate their response!

Apeel Works

It AP seems my shipment took a little longer than usual so my avocados were “dead ripe”, butter soft to touch. Normally the fruit would have been a brown mess inside, but this lot were nice and green inside and quite flavorful. They also held their ripeness nicely in the refrigerator, as instructed in the “care” directions. So.. “oh no!” as really “oh my!” In regard to keeping things fresh longer. Have been following this research for some time and think it can really make a difference in the food supply.

Hello! I was excited to get my box of Avocados. The larger ones were very ripe and ready to eat immediately. Several of the smaller ones were also. The rest were in stages 1,2,3. I put them in the fridge because I wanted them to last longer. I was expecting a little less ripe avocados so I could use them more over time, but I am making it work with what I had. One of the big ones had dark spots on the inside,but I know that is part of the process. I have referred this service to several people already. I will most likely put myself on an autoship in the future so I can have a steady stream coming to me. Thanks for asking!!
