Spacefood project is a bootstrapping startup. Our unconventional route starts by making Spacefood available to space exploration enthusiasts. We designed and produced packaging with the founder's private funds, ordered the first batch of fruits, and constructed the e-commerce sales point. The revenue from sales we reinvest into business development and strengthening our relations in the space exploration industry.
Our wild passion for space travel made us think about space exploration missions. In parallel, we love to snack on dried apples, plums, and mango. Thus, merging the two passions became obvious. We ended up building an interstellar business. The Spacefood brand produces high-quality, affordable dried fruits to be served everywhere. Including alien worlds.
100% natural texture, aroma, and nutrition values
A lot of effort went into the drying technique and preservation of 100% natural texture, aroma, and nutrition values. The drying process we developed with our partners focuses on preserving fruits, vegetables, and berries without any additives. Just a dried fruit - as is.
The production line is located in Georgia, a wonderful country of amazing people and great soil. The factory producing our fruits is optimized for small production volumes (up to 10 tonnes of single fruit). The lean setup and amazing team allow us to adjust the production line toward harsh requirements and demanding certifications.
Your firsthand experience and feedback are vital. Share how our food enhances your space journey, its effects on your health, and how waste can potentially rejuvenate soil in closed-loop ecosystems. Your insights could revolutionize food in space.
We're looking to collaborate on studies of plant based foods in space conditions, focusing on reutilization of packaging and unconsumed food for sustainable applications like 3D printing or as a novel soil supplement. Your expertise can help shape the future of space food systems.
Introducing Spacefood to decision-makers involved in space mission nutrition or astronauts could catalyze significant advancements in space food technology. Your initiative can open doors to new partnerships that enrich space missions and our collective understanding of sustainable space living.
As an investor, your partnership not only propels cutting-edge advancements in this field but also positions you at the forefront of a lucrative, growing industry. Experience Spacefood firsthand, understand our vision, and see how your investment can unlock exponential growth opportunities and shape the future of space exploration.

Help introduce Earth's finest foods to your world. We're eager to explore collaborations in growing, preserving, and enjoying Earth-native and local extraterrestrial produce. Let's create a universal exchange of flavors and nutrition.
Our primary target is to create a solid brand that participates in the food-cycle production, shipping, and utilization in space while contributing to the agricultural sector on Earth.
We supply space missions with delicious dry fruits, vegetables, and berries to supplement a meal for the space crew or a snack for engineers on the ground.
We focus is on the research. While the crew on ISS already grows vegetables, the problem with preserving the harvest remains. We want learn how our dried food performs in low gravity and in the closed-cycle environment.
The most complex step requires all the knowledge and the well-established processes. We aim to grow fruits, vegetables, berries on Moon and Mars.
Our products are already hitting analog missions, helping participants maintain peak physical and mental conditions. But our ambition goes further. We envision Spacefood becoming a part of everyday extraordinary experiences – from cinema capsules on the Moon to planetary hikes and asteroid camping.
We are a startup fueled by passion, relying on personal funds and support from friends and family. Our journey might seem long, but we are doing it without external investors or significant savings.
Here you can see our progress broken down into quarterly goals. Some plans might change along the way, but our commitment to delivering delicious Spacefood remains steadfast.
