A zero waste solution that provides healthy meals right to your doorstep.​

What We Did

Our objective was clear: to develop the most efficient and sustainable method of delivering nourishing meals directly to individuals, regardless of where they cook and prepare their food. Our research efforts delved into understanding consumer preferences and behaviors, enabling us to tailor the solution to meet their needs. Through our expertise in industrial design, research, and engineering, we embarked on a journey to create a game-changing solution.

Psycho-Aesthetics™

Product design is more than just winning awards; it’s about creating emotional connections between the product and the user. Our human-centered approach, Psycho-Aesthetics, helps us understand and quantify these connections. Our design firm uses it to create innovative products, technologies, services, brands, and more. We aim to create solutions that are relevant and impactful, using our approach to grow our clients’ businesses. With Psycho-Aesthetics as our foundation, we work with clients to establish a common language that can be used throughout our relationship. The Opportunity Zone for Fresh Realm was found to be in the enriched quadrant, providing users higher levels of interactivity and self-actualization than products in the competitive set.

Through our expertise in industrial design, research, and engineering, we embarked on a journey to create a game-changing solution.

One of the key innovations we introduced was the development of a reusable cold box, unlike any other one-way food delivery system in the market. This unique packaging system was designed to be returned, refreshed, and reused multiple times, eliminating the need for pounds of disposable insulating materials commonly found in other systems. By optimizing the transportation process, we enabled the efficient delivery of food from the fields to customers’ doorsteps in as little as two days. The result is an exceptional dining experience that offers fresher food while promoting sustainability.
