What we do

We bridge food innovation with social impact.


Our ingredients make every bite count.


We aim to revolutionize food manufacturing based on scientific principles.  We determine the “optimal processing” of whole foods, as opposed to conventional “over-processing” methods.

Our natural processing technology enables the body to access and absorb more nutrients per bite.  We apply this to underutilized plants, which serve as robust sources of natural nutrition.  Our approach is innovative in that it provides sustainable means to enhance the nutritional value of foods, eliminating the need for artificial modification.

Social impact is inherent to our operations.


In addition to innovative food technology, we aim to innovate across the entire value-chain to create maximum social impact, specifically for the following stakeholders:

1) Smallholder farmers: We will source our ingredients directly from smallholder farmers and work with partner organizations to provide training and resources.  Our metric of success will be increase in farmer revenue per year.

2) Local management & employees: We will hire members of the local community to build and support Innovesca's operations to manufacture our nutritious ingredients.  Our metric of success will be the number of steady off-farm jobs created.

3) End consumers: Ultimately, end consumers will benefit from the enhanced nutritional value of food products powered by Innovesca ingredients.
