Meet our portfolio company : kencko
A plant-rich diet is the key to a healthy future for people and planet.
Just 1 in 10 US adults eats the recommended minimum of 5 cups of fruits and vegetables every day. 1 in 20 eats enough fiber. We’re on a mission to improve those stats – not just by supplying high quality, nutritious plant-based foods, but also by providing people with education and support to build a healthier relationship with food, and a more nourishing overall diet.
As a Certified B Corporation®, kencko is committed to using the power of business to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. Every year, almost half of the world’s fresh fruits and vegetables go to waste, creating more greenhouse gas emissions than most countries. We capture the nutrients of fresh produce in a shelf-stable form, reducing spoilage in the supply chain and helping consumers to waste less. Our B-Corp™ certification holds us to the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.
kencko’s smoothies travel light
Kencko is actively reducing the carbon footprint of our operations in three key areas: production, packaging, and shipping. By adopting efficient manufacturing processes we can keep waste to a minimum. On the packaging side, they’ve eliminated single-use plastics, sourcing compostable and renewable materials instead. They also offer GoGreen carbon neutral shipping as standard. They’ll never stop striving to do better, and they’ll update you as they go.
The only ingredients you’ll ever find in kencko are whole organic plant foods, flash-frozen and slow-dried to retain their fiber and nutrients. Nothing added, nothing taken out except water – and that’s a promise. They champion freeze-drying because it’s the most energy-efficient way to extend the shelflife of produce with minimal loss of nutritional value.
