ORIGIN STORY

Freshly harvested. Deliciously nutritious. Transparently-sourced. Pesticide and GMO free. No plastic packaging.

This is the way we think food should be enjoyed. AVA was founded in 2016 by an epicurean chef and an organic food marketer with one simple but revolutionary idea: enable anyone to grow fruitful harvests just like skilled farmers. Our outsourced food systems today have disconnected us from the very source of our food. So, our bold ambition has become to unlock the green thumb in anyone, anywhere, to grow the freshest, healthiest and most delicious ingredients at home, all year round. By using modern technology to bring farming into the 21st century, for 21st century urbanites - from NASA-inspired LED technology to artificial intelligence - we aim to redefine the way millions of people consume groceries, to growing their own, right at home. As food-lovers, we truly believe that good food can be good for the world too. Let’s get growing!
