About Us

Our mission is to be a world leader in innovative technologies that extend the freshness and quality of fresh food and flowers. We strive to make fresh produce safer, more available and affordable, reducing global food waste in an ethical and sustainable way.
It’s Fresh! is a food technology business that helps the entire food supply chain to extend the shelf-life of fresh fruit and vegetables, to reduce waste and optimise produce quality.

In our work with growers, distributors, wholesalers and retailers we aim to reduce waste and improve food security, safety and affordability for communities around the world.
We achieve this through innovation and transformative products that use sustainable and recycled materials to reduce our own, and our customers, impact on the environment.

We understand the growing challenges facing the global food industry, and work with our partners to develop solutions to the real-world problems of food production and availability, in an ethically sound and financially efficient way.
