Ark Foods is a venture-backed, leading brand of high-end vegetable products. We combine farmers market product selection with commercial agriculture methods. We’re like Dole, but for millennials. Delicious. Clean. Sustainable.

The first vegetable we made popular was the Shishito Pepper, and we are now the largest producer in the United States. We have successfully marketed and scaled other unique veggie products, and this is just the beginning. You can now find the Ark Foods brand in leading national supermarkets and distributors nationwide.

We operate farms and processing facilities up and down the East Coast, ensuring transparency and traceability, starting with the seeds we use. This vertical integration allows us to stay true to our purpose – to feed vegetable curiosity to everyone, everywhere.
