Meet Produce Mate:
The world's first antimicrobial kitchen mat designed to extend the life of your fruits and vegetables. Simply place one on in the fridge or on the counter, load produce on top and we'll handle the rest!
Clean is King
Did you know that most fruits and vegetables spoil because of damage caused by microorganisms? Our approach is to stop bacteria at it's source. Produce Mate effectively turns your counter top or refrigerator into a bacteria-fighting powerhouse!
Less bacteria = Less rotten produce = Less waste & More money in your pocket.
For the Love of Food
We're driven by food waste for one simple reason - we're total foodies at heart. In fact, we care so much about wastefulness precisely because we love eating amazing, fresh food. The less we waste, the more we get to eat! It's a win-win, really.
Nobody likes wasting food - especially not expensive, fresh, organic fruits and vegetables. Produce Mate helps keep your food fresher, brighter, and firmer for longer. Your end-of-the-week "everything that's left in the fridge" casserole just got a whole lot tastier. Here's to getting the most out of your groceries, to throwing away less food, and to more delicious home cooked meals.
Doing Our Part
At the heart of Produce Mate is one simple idea: that individual decisions can add up to have a huge impact. Cutting down on food waste directly combats climate change. We offset our carbon footprint and, through years of prototyping, built our mats to be 100% carbon-neutral over their life time.
Plus, we use sustainable packaging and donate 1% of gross sales to leading eco-charities and like-minded organizations. Climate change doesn't compromise, and neither do we.
What's is it?
Produce Mate is an antimicrobial silicone kitchen mat that extends the shelf life of your fruits and vegetables.
How do I use it?
Place one in the refrigerator crisper drawer or on the counter top. Then, place fruits and vegetables on top of the mat and it will take care of the rest!
What's it made of?
Produce Mate is made of medical-grade silicone and is infused with a proprietary blend of all-natural antimicrobial minerals. At the factory, we bake this blend of minerals directly into the silicone, creating a long-lasting bacteria-fighting bond.
How does it work?.
The minerals within Produce Mate are antimicrobial, meaning they fight one of the leading causes of produce spoilage - bacteria growth. Less bacteria means longer lasting produce! Simple, yet effective.
How long will it last?
Our oldest prototypes are 2 years old and still going strong! You can expect at least 2 years of use out of your Produce Mate.
The mats work very well in keeping unripened fruit from rotting in Hawaii. Most fruit will spoil before they are ready to eat. Plus, the fruit does not need to be turned.
I live in Hawaii, and some papayas are not close to ripe when you buy them. But, the Produce Mates allow them to ripen without daily turning, as well as keeping rotten spots forming on the sides they rest on.
I am using two of these items and so far they seem to be working , I will keep you posted , thanks
