Mission

Make it easier to provide the best possible meals to families.


innovative technology

Researched and developed at North Carolina State University, the Fresh Box patent pending system scales down an existing, proven and leading industrial food preservation method for the home and business consumer, making it highly user friendly. In the United States 40% of the food produced goes uneaten costing the average family around $2,000 each year.  Fresh Box is aimed to reduce the avoidable food waste and allow households to make less frequent trips to the grocery store.  

Unlike other solutions on the market today such as conventional plastic containers, freezing, and canning – Fresh Box truly keeps food fresh while maintaining it’s natural taste, texture and nutritional content. At Fresh Box we are passionate about addressing the world’s greatest energy, environmental and economic challenges.
