LiVA® is a startup company developing smart bio-preservation and bio-control solutions for food shelf-life extension and crop protection.
Using natural preservation technology to transform the way we handle and consume fresh food.
The market for the natural preservation of fresh produce is booming.
The need today is more urgent than ever with the increasing demand to reduce toxic chemical residues.
Although the market is saturated with many players, many of them are focused on physiological protection, while existing solutions for microbial spoilage are either expensive or limited with the scope of veggies they handle and their efficacy.
Our goal is to reduce dependence on chemicals, packaging, and a cold supply chain. This will open up a new horizon to friendlier packaging materials and reduce energy consumption during storage and transportation.
How does it work?
We stimulate the growth of human-friendly bacteria with our 100% natural-based technology
LiVA's patent-pending blends contain food-grade ingredients secured in a smart sachet or a smart gel capsule.
The Magic Happens
We encourage the selective growth of designated human-friendly bacteria naturally present on the product or its surroundings.
The good bacteria spread evenly outside of the carrier through water vapours at the expense of pathogens and spoilage microorganisms.
The blend never comes in direct contact with the food.
LiVA® extends shelf-life by at least 100%.
Here are just a few examples:
