FRIDAY HARBOR, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- Strategic News Service (SNS) is proud to announce that Apeel Sciences has been selected as a 2014 FiReStarter company to be featured at the 12th annual Future in Review (FiRe) conference. Described by The Economist as "the best technology conference in the world," FiRe features global thought leaders in technology and the global economy, including Elon Musk, Mark Hurd, Vint Cerf, Leroy Hood, Patti Grace Smith, Craig Venter, Paul Jacobs, Michael Dell, and many others. FiReStarters are selected based on the strength of their innovations and their potential to bring positive change to the world, and are showcased at an exclusive investor reception at the FiRe conference, in panels throughout the event, and with ongoing relationships introduced and supported by SNS.
Recent reports indicate post-harvest losses of 40% in the United States, and a staggering 70%-90% in the developing world, despite widespread efforts to improve crop yields through selective breeding and pesticide usage. Apeel Sciences provides proprietary solutions, created from natural plant extracts, to reduce post-harvest losses and increase the shelf life of perishable items, such as fruit, vegetables, and cut flowers. Sourced from low-cost sustainable materials and applied to the surface of fresh produce using an inexpensive spray coating technique, Apeel's solutions act as ultrathin organic edible barrier coatings. By mitigating spoilage caused by water loss, oxidation, and microbial attack, Apeel Sciences is helping feed our world's population while conserving our natural resources.
"As the world's population continues to rise, humanity will find it increasingly difficult to ignore inefficiencies surrounding food production. We believe FiRe is the perfect venue to present our edible innovations to some of the world's most forward-thinking individuals," said James Rogers, President and CEO of Apeel Sciences.
"We are delighted to have Apeel Sciences join us at FiRe 2014 as a FiReStarter company. We have been watching them develop this world-changing technology for a couple of years now, and we look forward to helping them get the word out about their work in advancing organic preservation. What a terrific idea!" said Mark Anderson, FiRe Chair and CEO of the Strategic News Service.
