Akorn fights food waste with our smart, multifunctional edible coatings platform. Our coatings are made with upcycled sustainable and abundant corn by-products and they can double or triple the shelf life of food and deliver long-lasting, safe, tasty and nutritious produce options for modern diets and lifestyles.
Who We Are
We have assembled a team that brings deep industry experience and understanding of consumer demands; producer and supply chain constraints; and technical expertise in areas ranging from post-harvest physiology and chemistry to food processing equipment and perishable cold chain distribution.
