A plant-rich diet is key to a healthy future for all of us - and our planet. Here’s how kencko is making a difference, one berry at a time.
Just 1 in 10 US adults eats the recommended minimum of 5 cups of fruits and vegetables every day. 1 in 20 eats enough fiber. We’re on a mission to improve those stats - not just by supplying high quality, nutritious plant-based foods, but also by providing people with education and support to build a healthier relationship with food, and a more nourishing overall diet.
Every year, almost half of the world’s fresh fruits and vegetables go to waste, creating more greenhouse gas emissions than most countries. We use freeze-drying technology to capture the nutrients of fresh produce in a shelf-stable form, reducing spoilage in the supply chain and helping consumers to waste up to 30% less.
kencko founder Tomás Froes used a plant-rich diet to heal his acute gastritis. To solve the problem of fitting enough fruits and vegetables into his busy lifestyle, he developed the first freeze-dried, instant smoothie - and it was too good not to share. Three years later, we shipped our 12 millionth smoothie.
