Changing the Way We Eat from Farm to Fork
Tuesday, October 8

Austin Convention Center Austin Suite
Fenugreen - Co-Founder
Fenugreen Founder & Inventor, Kavita, shares the story of how FreshPaper, a simple innovation that began as a middle school science project sparked a global movement to reduce food waste. Kavita developed and patented FreshPaper after she happened upon its active ingredients while visiting her grandma in India. After Kavita accidentally drank contaminated tap water, her grandma gave her a home remedy – a spice tea. Kavita then became curious about the potential anti-microbial properties of her grandma’s remedy. After years of research, she developed and patented FreshPaper, a remarkable application for keeping food fresh.
Since launching at a single Cambridge, MA farmer's market in 2011, FreshPaper has spread to farmers and consumers in over 35 countries, and is now available at retailers across the country, including Whole Foods Market. Through its "Buy a Pack, Give a Pack" initiative, Fenugreen matches purchases with donations of FreshPaper to local food banks.
