Partnering with Apeel

Apeel Benefits the Entire Supply Chain

Our plant-derived, end-to-end solution doubles the shelf life of citrus. Suppliers and retailers can bring European shoppers mandarins with more marketable days, oranges that maintain firmness, and clementines with fresher leaves to drive a premium price.  In the US, suppliers and retailers can bring shoppers limes that retain their color and moisture for longer. 


Growers & Packinghouses

  • Maintain pack out weight.
  • New post-harvest quality tool for organic growers.
  • Access to new and farther markets.
  • With mandarins, reduce reliance on several common postharvest fungicides and traditional waxes.


  • Improve inventory management.
  • Expand distribution radius, including export.
  • Improved appearance and firmness upon arrival.
  • Better color retention for limes – delayed onset of yellowing.


  • Reduce shrink and increase sales.
  • Superior product experience, driving consumer satisfaction and loyalty.
  • Promote a more sustainable food system.


  • Longer-lasting juiciness and flavor.
  • More time to enjoy citrus at peak freshness.
  • Less at-home spoilage and money lost.

Seeing is Believing

Applied to the surface of citrus fruit, Apeel forms a thin “peel” of edible plant material which keeps moisture in and oxygen out, maintaining flavor and quality for longer.

Apeel can reduce shrink, enable supply chain efficiencies and environment savings. For every load of Apeel Limes or Mandarins sold, the technology has avoided greenhouse gas emissions and water use throughout the supply chain.
