10.) Hazel Technologies
Hazel Technologies, an agricultural technology company that delivers new solutions to combat food waste, has recently received $13 million in Series B funding, bringing the company’s cumulative total raised to $17.8 million.
Nearly 30 percent of all food that is harvested in the United States is thrown away – often it’s not consumed because of early spoilage. The company’s core technologies help prevent waste by releasing active, shelf-life enhancing vapor from packaging inserts called sachets. Growers place the sachets in boxes of bulk produce at the time of harvest, extending shelf-life of products up to three times by slowing aging in produce and preventing fungus or decay.
