Description
Business Background: 

P&G Ventures partners with external technology companies and startups to create new businesses in categories where P&G does not currently compete. Food waste is a big economic, social, and environmental problem with a significant portion of waste generated at the household level. PGV is looking for solutions that can enable consumers to better utilize the food they buy so they waste less and even give the food waste that is created a second useful life beyond becoming trapped in a landfill. 

Business Challenge / Needs Definition: 

P&G Ventures would like to explore enabling technologies for the following jobs-to-be-done in the Food Cycle Management space: 

  • Consumables that inhibit produce spoilage to keep produce fresher for longer under typical household storage conditions (i.e. + refrigerator, + countertop) 

  • Consumables that monitor real-time food spoilage (meat, fish, produce) 

  • Consumables that monitor and/or help retain nutritional content of food over time 

  • Consumables that are safety and regulatory approved for cleaning & sanitizing whole produce in the home 

  • Consumables that help transform food waste into something of tangible value for consumers 

  • Consumables that help upcycle food waste in a “frictionless” way, by reducing time, effort, skill, and any potential odor or vermin issues

The geographic focus of this brief is global, with a primary emphasis on the US and China.
