Ricardo Vice Santos and Tomás Froes founded kencko with a simple mission: to help people eat more organic fruits and vegetables. With a wealth of international start-up experience in foodtech, DTC/subscription brands and a shared passion for sustainability and wellness, they are building a nutrition-led, smart food company that cuts waste and helps people eat well and live well.
By capturing all the nutrients of fresh produce in a shelf-stable product, kencko puts fruits and veggies on standby until you need them. Their products are designed for maximum nutrition, minimum waste.
In Japan, where people live longer than anywhere else, ‘kencko’ means health. People who eat healthy diets have longer lifespans, with lower risk of chronic illnesses like cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, and obesity.
Kencko is No-fuss instant smoothies. The effortless way to add organic fruits and veggies to your breakfast routine. No added sugars, sweeteners, or anything else. All the vitamins and fiber. Compostable packaging. They transform fresh, organic fruits and veggies into handy single-serving instant smoothies. Each one contains about 80 calories, and gives the same nutritional benefits as 2 cups of fresh produce. Simply mix the powder into water or your favorite milk for a quick, healthy boost – wherever you are.
