We reduce food waste throughout the produce supply chain and promote better nutrition for all, by enabling the producers and retailers to deliver harvest-fresh, tastier and longer-lasting fruits and vegetables.
Akorn was founded in 2019 by veterans from high technology, consumer goods and agriculture. It is based in Berkeley, CA, a short distance from California’s Central Valley which provides more than half of the fruits, vegetables and nuts grown in the US.
Our mission is to enable producers and retailers to deliver the highest quality fresh produce while meeting their sustainability objectives. We aim to improve the producers’ bottomlines and delight the consumers as we tackle the problem of food waste.
