THE HARVESTHOLD MISSION To Stop Produce From Growing to Waste

We believe the fruits of your labor should fill more people’s lives with goodness instead of filling up landfills. This is why our ultimate goal is to reduce as much food waste as possible. By extending the life of produce by up to 50%, we help it reach more people in more places, which decreases the squandering of natural resources and the emission of greenhouse gasses that are byproducts of food waste. With the earth’s population growing every day, we know a more efficient food supply chain is our only way forward.

OUR PEOPLE Meet Our Team

Our HarvestHold team consists of some of the most experienced professionals in the fresh produce and postharvest industry. We’re honored to serve the fresh produce industry to help reimagine the supply chain to deliver more value and less waste.
