The Spacefood mission

Fueling space explorers & Earth innovators

Like the 34% of people who dream of going on a space tour, we share that aspiration. The vastness of space beckons, but it also presents significant challenges. We understand that for space exploration to advance further, addressing the critical issue of sustainability.

As humanity's aspirations extend to new celestial domains, ensuring a sustainable and varied food supply becomes increasingly crucial. While advancements in recycling water and air on space missions have been made, food remains the main limiting factor in mission duration and distance.  

In space, the usual conveniences of Earth – like a quick trip to a store around the corner or regular waste collection trucks – are non-existent. This reality makes traditional food supply methods impractical.

In space, where every gram and millimeter is crucial, Spacefood optimizes nutrition, weight, and storage efficiency.

Spacefood is more than food; it's a step towards longer, more ambitious sustainable food solutions.
  • Nutrition: Creating nutrient-rich, travel-efficient food to sustain long missions.
  • Storage: Innovating ways to keep food safe and appetizing in extreme conditions.
  • Waste: Developing sustainable practices to minimize and repurpose food waste.

Equally important is our dedication to addressing nutritional challenges here on Earth, ensuring that our solutions are effective in a variety of demanding environments.

Food in space is a challange

Limited food options for astronauts in space, much like professionals in harsh terrestrial environments, highlight the importance of food quality. In such demanding conditions, not just sustenance matters but also the food's ability to uplift morale and sustain energy.

Our advanced drying process preserves essential fibers, vitamins, and minerals without additives, offering Spacefood the purest form of nutrition. This is especially crucial for individuals tackling challenging projects, where maintaining well-being is paramount.

We meet the needs by ensuring a consistent taste and texture, providing a reliable and comforting sensory experience. This consistency is vital, offering a taste of home and a dependable energy source, which is particularly important in tough environments.

Paving the path for the next frontier

Spacefood is on a mission to be the "go-to" source for food on lunar and Martian bases. Which is tied to integration into closed-cycle solutions for food growth, preservation, and utilization.

In the first step, we tackle food preservation by crafting top-tear treats for astronauts, using the learnings as a foundation to adapt and optimize for unique challenges.
