About AVA

AVA is dedicated to creating products that empower people to enrich the planet. Transparent, free-from foods have never been more important, and yet most store-bought produce still comes in plastic packaging, from unclear sources, laced with pesticides, and improperly labelled. So, we set out to create AVA Byte, a smart indoor gardening technology that allows anyone, anywhere to grow their own food in less time than traditional agriculture, with better flavour, more sustainably than even organic. Who wouldn't want better tasting tomatoes and kale, without any pesticides?
