Canadian company Abeego has launched an all-natural beeswax food wrap that claims to keep food fresh longer.
The reusable Abeego products are an environmentally-friendly replacement for disposable plastic wraps and bags. Their design extends the life of fresh food, preserves natural flavours and creates less food waste.
Abeego, invented in the home of Toni Desrosiers and Colin Johnston of Victoria, British Columbia, was born from the question ‘how did we store food before plastic wrap?’
Toni used her background in holistic nutrition to research the history of food preservation and look for a solution in nature. She found it in Beeswax, a material that’s been used around the world for hundreds of years.
“Natural materials keep food alive longer,” said Toni Desrosiers, co-owner, Abeego Designs. “Those who love Abeego appreciate the back-to-basics approach we’ve taken to keep food fresh.”
Abeego products are made from hemp and certified organic cotton that’s been infused with pure beeswax, certified organic jojoba oil, and tree resin. These materials have natural anti-fungal, antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties that work to create a protective material that allows food to breathe.
