Green Onyx

We start our overview of the companies participating in Feeding the Accelerator at the U.S. Pavilion today by featuring Green Onyx.

We have a huge problem in our world today supplying people with enough nutrition and opportunity for healthy foods. Many areas of the world are unable to grow a substantial amount of the necessary fruits and vegetables to keep their population healthy. Other areas are simply uneducated in what the body needs to live healthy.

Green Onyx is a company creating a superfood that can double its biomass in 48 hours with a nutritional benefit comparable to a combination of kale, spinach and broccoli. Plus, it comes through technology that both grows and distributes your food at the touch of a button. It all happens inside a machine that can be small for home use or set up in larger quantities for restaurants or bigger facilities. The food is Khai-Nam, a very fast growing, traditional, nutritious vegetable from the areas of Thailand, Burma and Laos. It’s also easy to blend with other foods, and as a bonus it helps clean the air.

The Green Onyx system is a simple way to get nutritious food to anyone and it can continue to grow over and over, thus being sustainable. This is a good solution for places with low nutritional options and no room, or not the right climate, to grow.
