Strella’s Mission

More than 40% of all fresh produce is wasted in the US, which accounts for over $17 billion dollars in lost product annually and contributes more CO2 emissions than all of US transportation combined. Globally, food that is never consumed accounts for 7% of the global freshwater supply and 308MM hectares of land. Our goal is to reduce these drastic numbers by making the produce supply chain smarter.

Strella uses proprietary IoT biosensors to monitor and predict produce quality in real time as it travels the supply chain. We reduce food waste and help deliver better quality produce to consumers.

Our product is used commercially in high-value decision-making in apple and pear storage. We’re growing the team to improve our product and service higher impact markets.

Working at Strella

We hire smart people and trust them to get their job done. We don’t have required hours or limited PTO. Occasionally, we stay late or work on weekends to get it done. We also take breaks whenever we need (unless a customer is waiting on us). We’re doing important, exciting work and that is what drives us. Nothing is above or below our pay grade.
