At Foodberry, we believe nature has provided the template for delicious, healthy, and sustainable food.

We’ve turned this design into a technology platform and are using it to transform the way we eat, for the good of people, and the planet.

On a mission to

Transform the way we eat.

Our technology platform can be used to directly address key sustainable development targets, by creating nutrient dense food forms which last longer, utilize diverse ingredient inputs, and reduce packaging waste.

Plastic Free Packaging

Our technology removes the need for plastic packaging, meeting consumers' increasing desire for sustainability.

Bioavailable Nutrition

Balanced nutritional profile based on Nature’s Macros, including high moisture content, plant-based fibers, and phytonutrients, for increased absorption and decreased inflammation.

Limitless Applications

From familiar foods like yogurt and hummus to the next generation of plant-based alternatives to the personalized foods of tomorrow, the Foodberry format is compatible with virtually any food imaginable.

How we create

A better kind of food.

Our products mimic botanical fruit with protective coatings of fibers, phytonutrients, and minerals surrounding a nutritive and delicious core. Our patented library of fruit skin barriers allows us to create berries of food you already know, or can only imagine.

Tapping into Mother Nature's secrets.

The essence of our platform is deeply intuitive: our simple secret is that we’ve unlocked Mother Nature’s secret for protecting what she makes. We learned how to wrap up goodness just like nature does.


Creating a new class of materials.

Through design principles and natural chemistries found in fruit skins and peels, we’ve created an entirely new class of edible barrier materials.

Biomimicry isn’t just the form, it’s also the function (moisture barrier, nutrition, flavor) and the substance (fruit + veg fibers, phytonutrients, natural polymer networks).


Designing products that make an impact.

Our always on-the-go modern lifestyle has created demand for convenient foods that are easy, portable and highly craveable. That convenience has come at the cost of decreased nutritional value, declining health outcomes & increased plastic waste.

Foodberries provide that convenience in a format that is inherently nutritious and sustainable, with a limitless variety that offers a glimpse into the future of regenerative and personalized food.


Rooted deep in science.
