As reported by FAO, 1.3 billion tons of the food produced in the world for human consumption wasted. Out of this large amount, 40 – 50% is root crops, fruits, and vegetables. However, current solutions to prevent produce wastes are inefficient, Eden Agritech, or “Eden,” is founded to help prevent fresh produce from being easily spoiled by using FDA approved solution.
Eden offers the solution to maintain food quality and extend its shelf life up to three times. Our innovative technology is applied to modify the fresh atmosphere to lessen its stress and delay ripening. Eden business model is a business to business (B2B) as a technology provider that generates revenue from its food additive solution selling. The potential preservative market size is USD 567million in South East Asia and USD 8.1 billion globally. Eden will provide free-of-charge product knowledge training services bundling with our product solution selling, and the premium charged an advisory fee for sophisticated advice as post-harvest management and facility management. Eden customers include but are not limited to exporters, suppliers, food processors, and distributors who would like to secure from logistic spoilages in their supply chains.
EDEN develops the chemical-free edible coating solution (or 100% natural way) that can prolong the shelf life of fresh-cut produce up to 3 times. The solution deals with the global issue of food waste, reduces waste during logistic and rejection cost on the defected produce and enables more sustainable ecosystem along sustainable development goal.
Most importantly, Eden’s technology can protect fresh-cut produce from microbial by slowing their growth rate on the produce, which other solutions in the market is not available. The coating can be applied to different kinds of produce such as dried fruit, extract produce. EDEN maintains the strategic vision to change the way of fresh produce trading and bring sustainability to its global supply chain by using FDA approved solution and in process of filing second patent globally.
EDEN is on the POC stage of big conglomerate food companies in Thailand (i.e., Thaiwah, MK Restaurant Group, S&P, Food Passion, TIPCO, CP All and Fruit Dee). Also, EDEN start to discuss with Japanese companies since they are interested in EDENs’ technology such as Mitsui chemical and Marubeni. These create the possibility of collaboration with Japanese corporations and open step into international stage in upcoming year.
