Freshness from Farm to Fork: Sage Fruit + Apeel

"Apeel extends the lifespan of the fruit substantially. As a grower, it’s a no-brainer working with a product like that."

Meet Sage Fruit Company

The crunch of an apple: perhaps the most important cue of the apple eating experience that will follow that first bite. It’s not just because everyone loves that snappy crunch, but because it can signal the quality of the apple you’re eating. Is it popping with flavor — that perfect mix of tart and sweet — like the day it was picked?

When we first launched longer-lasting avocados protected by Apeel's plant-derived solution, word got around to farming communities. That’s when Sage Fruit Company first heard of Apeel through one of their apple growers. Farming organically, growers like Keith Veselka don’t have the same tools for preserving longevity as conventional apples.  When we met Keith during the apple harvest this year, he reported, “One of the biggest hurdles with farming organically is you have limited storage capability. Anything you can do to extend the lifespan of that fruit in storage is greatly to your benefit.”


Longer-Lasting Freshness

With Keith’s goal in mind, Sage reached out to Apeel, and we began adapting our solution for organic apples. After a year of trials, we brought America organic apples that have a longer shelf life and better performance during storage. They stay firmer over time - for a snappier bite - and even keep their color longer.

Working with Apeel means that organic apple harvests from Sage Fruit Company will travel far while staying fresh. We’re excited that Apeel can help deliver high-quality apples from growers like Keith to food-waste fighting retail partners like Kroger and Harps. Most of all, we’re thrilled to bring a better apple eating experience to consumers.

So keep your eyes peeled for Apeel-Protected Organic Apples from Sage Fruit Company! On store shelves they can be identified by an Apeel logo on the produce sticker, and at home by a bite that goes “snap!”
