Reimagine the Food
Value Chain With Us

 

Working with Purpose

Our lives depend on the healthy growth of produce, and yet fully one-third of the food produced in the world for human consumption — approximately 1.3 billion tons — is lost or wasted across the supply-chain every year. Our current food systems are not sustainable for either the planet or the market.

Trellis AI reduces agricultural waste and improves food production efficiencies in order to help conserve global resources, bringing more value to growers, manufacturers, retailers, and consumers, and making food and beverage manufacturing more resource-efficient and scalable than ever before.

The People Behind Trellis

The food supply chain is more complex than ever before, and current food systems are vulnerable due to shifting market needs and global climate change. To address this challenge, we brought together a team of leading AI experts, agricultural data scientists, applied researchers, mathematicians, and engineers.

We believe that AI can unleash new economies of scale in agri-food production. We love collaborating with smart, passionate, and curious individuals motivated to make a bold leap forward to boost food production efficiency, reduce food waste, and strengthen global food security.
