Wisefood - About us

FROM FOUNDING IN OVER 5000 BRANCHES IN 3 YEARS. EXPORT TO 30 COUNTRIES. 100 MILLION STRAWS REPLACED.

We supply retail and wholesale in Germany and internationally. We are grateful that we were able to supply many great customers such as GORILLAS, ALDI, REWE, EDEKA, TRANSGOURMET, METRO, MIGROS and many more. We have put millions of products on the market, replacing numerous plastic products with better alternatives. What began as a student project has quickly developed into one of the fastest growing food tech companies in Germany.

Winner EIT Food Wisefood

Wisefood is known from numerous television programs - including Galileo, Die Höhle der Löwen or the ARD Mittagsmagazin. We have been promoted and awarded numerous prizes such as "Germany Land of Ideas", TRANSGOURMET Newcomer Award , Top 50 Cleantech Startups worldwide and METRO NX FOOD. We were also able to win the EIT Food Award , funded with 60,000 euros in prize money from the EU, and thus successfully assert ourselves over hundreds of other companies. The German Accelerator has also supported us in our international expansion - a funding program for young German companies established by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.

We became known with edible drinking straws and spoons. We give apple fibers, a by-product of apple juice production, a second life and thus protect resources and the environment.

With our interdisciplinary research team, we develop new patented recipes as well as innovative manufacturing methods to replace plastic disposable tableware with sustainable and edible versions.

Both apple fiber and grain are highly renewable and regenerative resources and not only provide a more sustainable product but also extend the shelf life of the product. This allows it to withstand several hours of continuous use and fully degrade after composting.

In the last 4 years, we at WISEFOOD have undergone rapid development and are now the supplier with what is probably the largest portfolio of edible disposable tableware in the world. In addition to food products, WISEFOOD also offers a large range of non-food products - also in the takeaway area.
