U.S.-based B-Corp nutrition brand Kencko was established by Tomás Froes, who was diagnosed with acute gastritis, due to which he had to rely on pills for nutrition for the rest of his life. After he recovered, he realized that about nine out of ten Americans were not consuming adequate amounts of fruits and vegetables each day, and about 50% of the fruits and vegetables are wasted every year.
With the goal to change the scenario, Froes was motivated to establish Kencko, a brand in the freeze-dried fruits & vegetables market, that recently launched its first product. Kencko's instantly soluble smoothies use dehydrated organic vegetables and fruits without any additional sugar. In other words, the product offers the original content without the water. The rising inclination towards plant-based diets across the U.S. and Canada has been encouraging start-ups like Kencko to reinvent the wheel.
