GreenPod Labs asked nature how to slow down the process of fruit from rotting and won the Ray of Hope Prize 2022.
In spite of India being the 2nd largest producer of fruits and vegetables, 40% of it is lost before it reaches consumers. This costs the country $12 billion in food waste.
GreenPod Labs produce sachets with natural plant extracts to activate the inbuilt defense mechanism which slows down the ripening rate. By minimising microbial growth their sachets extend the shelf life of fruits and vegetables.
