Meet the Maker
FreshPaper was created by chance -- its founder happened upon the active ingredients after accidentally drinking some tap water in India. Her grandmother gave her a home remedy - a mixture of spices, which kept her from getting sick. After years of research and development, (starting with a middle school science project!), she discovered a new application of her grandmother's generations-old home remedy-- a remarkably effective way to keep food fresh! Fenugreen was founded in 2010. It all started with handmade batches of FreshPaper handed out at the farmer's markets and street fairs in Cambridge, MA. Today, Fenugreen FreshPaper is used by farmers and families across the globe, and Fenugreen is establishing initiatives to benefit local food banks in the U.S. and small-scale farmers in the developing world.View Full Profile
