The Bill Gates-backed start-up fighting world hunger with long-lasting avocados

This Bill Gates-backed start-up is battling world hunger with avocados that last twice as long

Food tech start-up Apeel Sciences is fighting world hunger one avocado at a time. The company's technology creates a plant-derived second peel around fruit and vegetables, that can double shelf life, and allows produce to reach the people who need it most. Apeel Sciences has raised a total of $110 million in funding from investors, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Viking Global Investors and Andreessen Horowitz.
