we can make a change

and say goodbye to needless food waste

An Orenda is a small-scale, solar powered dehydrator for fruits, vegetables, grains, and even insects. It is fully powered with natural solar energy and uses no electric inputs (or solar panels).  Whether you live in bustling Shanghai or deep in the Andes Mountains, we have a dehydrator which easily preserves produce of all kinds. The goal of KinoSol is to end food waste, increase nutrient availability, and improve the livelihoods of subsistence farmers around the world.  Today, one third of all food produced is wasted and KinoSol is working to save this third.

KinoSol launched as a Specific Benefit Corporation (SBC) in 2015 and we are thrilled to be a part of this new legal entity. We also want to make sure you understand what that means and how a for-profit company can pursue social good.

SBCs are for-profit companies that are obligated to consider the impact of their decisions on society as a whole, not just our shareholders. We are legally required to use profits to make positive impacts on specific categories. For KinoSol, that means ensuring everyone has access to the tools which makes food accessible year round. Our mission is to end post-harvest loss, improve health, and create entrepreneurial opportunities for subsistence farmers throughout the world.

pursuing perfection

We are dedicated to finding the best design.  One that ensures that even that most small-scale farmer can preserve as much of their yields as possible.  With the help of dedicated engineers, food scientists, and development experts we have created a simple design suitable for small-scale farmers living in low income countries. KinoSol is now in the process of creating our second dehydrator meant for those living in urban and cooler environments.

Save the Third


Globally, one third of all food produced is wasted at various points in the food supply chain. This results in huge amounts of resources being used in vain. Per capita, more food is wasted in the developed world, which is most often seen at the retail level. For developing countries, waste usually occurs during the early stages of the supply chain. 

We have been testing the Orenda in countries around the world to ensure they function in a variety of environments. Check out the experiences we had field testing in Uganda:

we need sustainability

Each night one in eight people on earth fall asleep with nothing in their stomach. The problem is not lack of food, but lack of reliable access.  There is food to feed the world's hungry, but unfortunately it ends up rotting before anyone can consume it. Currently, we are throwing away over one third of edible food every year, which is enough to feed every hungry person currently living on earth. If current waste trends continue, food production will need to increase 70-100% to feed a population of 9 billion people; which is estimated to occur in the year 2050.  Increasing environmental degradation is escalating issues associated with food production as well. The world must grow more food on less land, with fewer available resources, and more marginal inputs.  Creating products which aim to reduce food waste while sustaining environmental resources is becoming a prevalent need with each passing day.
