The Inspiration

A probiotic supplement and a jar of pickles.

The use of live bacteria for crops and food protection has been known for many years. Still, its application is limited due to high costs and strict handling procedures required to maintain their viability. Liva has found a way to overcome this challenge by naturally stimulating their growth instead of incorporating them as live cultures.

Several years ago, a bottle of a probiotic supplement caught the eyes of our founder and innovator, Miss Ifat Hammer. 

She began to wonder - if probiotics can protect our gut from disease-causing bacteria, why can't they protect our foods?


Apparently, probiotics are well known for their preservation capabilities, but they are expensive and require strict handling procedures

The idea behind Liva is that instead of adding the bacteria live, our technology stimulates their growth naturally, just like we do with pickles where lactic acid bacteria grow spontaneously under optimal conditions.


And this is the essence of Liva.

Simple and yet smart.
