Reduced food waste
Sticking it to food waste
Ryp Labs is an award-winning food and crop protection company developing and commercializing biomimicry solutions to combat global food waste in a sustainable and safe manner. The company develops natural and safe formulations that can be applied to a variety of surfaces to increase the shelf life of fruits and vegetables by inhibiting premature rotting without directly impacting the natural ripening process. The company’s product line includes StixFresh stickers, and Shelf Defence, labels & package coatings. Ryp Labs identifies the natural compounds that plants produce to protect themselves. Based on these, the company produces formulations to fight specific post-harvest diseases. The formulation is released in a controlled release system, where the product vaporizes in the air surrounding the fruit and vegetables, mimicking the plant’s natural defence mechanism.
