Problem: Every year 1.3 billion tons of fresh fruit and vegetables are wasted around the world. Inspiration: How do natural products such as corn on the cob manage to keep moist for such long period of time? Corn on the cob is protected by series of leaves of porous material.  The overlapping and porosity of these sheets allow the corn to stay fresh and retain the most water possible for a longer period of time. The Solution: Freshdy is a flexible micro perforated multilayer bag, which keeps hydrated fresh fruit and vegetables for longer.
