Our Story

Origins   |   ​Our Mission   |   Meet the Inventor

FRESHPAPER was created by a young inventor who happened upon the active ingredients after accidentally drinking some tap water while visiting her grandma in India. Her grandma gave her a home remedy - a mixture of spices - which kept her from getting sick. (Hear the story in her own words.)

 

After years of research and development, starting with a middle school science project, she discovered a new application of her grandma's generations-old home remedy - a remarkably effective way to keep food fresh!

 

The FRESHGLOW Co. was founded in 2010 when we took handmade batches of FreshPaper to Farmer's Markets and street fairs in Cambridge, MA.

​Today, FRESHPAPER by The FRESHGLOW Co. is used by farmers and families across the globe, and we are establishing initiatives to benefit local food banks in the U.S. and small-scale farmers in the developing world.

The FRESHGLOW Co. is a social enterprise with the mission of “Fresh for All.”
