Company Size: We're a startup with 2 founders, 2 employees, 1 intern, 1 mentor, several researchers + suppliers.

Product: We sell an alternative to leather by the meter.

Development Stage: MVP

MVP: 6 months

BACKGROUND

We turn apples into leather.

We're a product development company upcycling resource streams in food production. We bring the biotech to the people!

Today there's a need for alternative materials. Traditional material producers overlook waste management and use harmful ingredients, affecting agriculture, livestock, and consumer wellbeing. Customers have warranted health and sustainability concerns. To address these issues in a circular economy context we upcycle tons of food waste accumulated in pressing apples for cider and juice. Users of our product gain an upgraded material experience with original Apple Leather. It's 100% biodegradable-in-nature "leather" Apple Material. This is the future - a new circular alternative to conventional animal leather, paper packaging, or even plastic. Apple Material can be both rigid or highly flexible with an enchanting handle and unique story. Apple can be thick or thin, and it has the potential to be used across industries. We have 5 materials in our portfolio with different tactilities and colors.

Apple Leather all the qualities of animal leather with none of the costs to the environment and workers health. Our simple process, using the waste in juice and cider production is cost-effective. We acquire this waste directly from the producer for a low cost by the ton. To turn animal skin into leather it takes over 20 steps in 10 days. Our process takes only 5 steps, complete in just 1 day. With these facts we could produce our material even cheaper and faster than the leather industry produces animal leather. Furthermore, no animals are harmed in our production, and we use only eco-friendly chemicals and ingredients. Our material has the potential to be the first 100% biodegradable alternative to animal leather on the market.

We are founded on the UN's 17 Sustainable Development goals, specifically #12 Responsible Production and Consumption and #13 Climate Action.

We plan to protect the idea with patent, something you could also be involved in, based on new technologies we develop in the production process and in the recipe. The recipe includes apple pulp waste, ingredient X (organic food waste), sugar, and water.
