Six years in the making, we're excited to share that Apeel avocados supplied by Del Rey Avocado and Eco Farms are rolling out at Costco and Harps Food Stores in the U.S. Midwest, marking our first supplier and retail partnerships. We're thrilled to be working with partners who share our vision of a food system that produces better quality food with less waste.
Why are we starting with avocados? Everyone loves avocados, but spoilage is a major challenge and avocado quality can vary greatly based on where you live in the country. You never really know what you're getting until you cut into your avocado at home — and it's so frustrating to have to throw away a bad avocado! In fact, avocados are so universally frustrating to people, they've reached internet meme status.
Avocados with Apeel have double the ripe time, which means better quality and more time for you and your family to enjoy them — so less good food goes to waste. And since avocados with Apeel maintain delicious quality and ripeness for much longer, without requiring the use of refrigeration or any preservatives, grocery stores can begin offering top quality avocados in more locations across the U.S.
Avocados are just the starting point in our mission to fight food waste and bring fresher, better quality fruits and vegetables to more people everywhere. From all of us at Apeel, thanks for your support. Keep an eye out for other types of Apeel produce at your local grocery store soon!
