With Oprah and Katy Perry as Investors, Apeel Sciences Raises Millions To Fight Food Waste

Apeel Sciences, whose edible coatings keep produce fresher longer, announced US$250 million in new funding. Their mission is to fight food waste globally.

By extending the shelf life of fresh fruits and vegetables, Apeel hopes to reduce the amount of food wasted globally and help smallholder farmers sell produce to further-away markets and avoid food insecurity.
