I spoke with a guy yesterday that told me he checked out our website
He told me that he is a big consumer of bananas, he eats them all the time. But, he found himself throwing away bananas because they were either too ripe or not ripe enough. He explained that he was very picky with his bananas and hated throwing them away. That is when he mentioned that the Produce Wizard™ would be perfect for a guy like him who eats a lot of bananas and also hates throwing them away. What is the Produce Wizard™ you ask? It is a table-top device that allows you to extend the life of your produce while also killing 99% of bacteria such as E-coli and salmonella.

Tomatoes will last 30 days in a Produce Wizard™ and bananas up to 21+ days. If you don't like tomatoes and/or bananas? The Produce Wizard™ also works for Apricots, Avocados, Cantaloupes, Honeydews, Melons, Kiwis, Mangoes, Nectarines, Papayas, Peaches, Pears and Plums. Any ethylene (the gas that causes fruits and vegetables to ripen) producing fruit or vegetable. So not only will you be saving your fruits and vegetables, you will be saving your money as well. Name another appliance that saves you money and cuts down on waste!

 Here is a video to explain a little more about the Produce Wizard™.

The challenges of bringing a product to market are many and varied. The biggest challenge is usually related to money and the need for more of it. Another big challenge can be the direction a company is headed and how different visions can sometimes collide. We all know that meeting our challenges head on and completing our goals leads to a real sense of satisfaction. But what do we do when a challenge cannot be completed or a goal has no end in sight. This is where resolve comes in and we learn exactly what we are capable of as humans and professionals alike. You may have the best product in the world but without the proper plan your path to success is lined with overflowing dumpsters and you have no shoes on.

Many of us have had ideas that we thought could make us a lot of money. But where do we go with our ideas? Some people choose to act on their ideas and make an effort to share those ideas or products with the rest of the world. Some ideas may just simply lie in the mind of the beholder.

And we are not just limited to a single definition of product. Musicians have songs, artists have paintings, sculptures etc. In this age of technology and global media, "products" can become overnight successes. Look at this guy for example

Produce Wizard™ Florida

Produce Wizard™
Many times when we here this phrase we assume people are talking about life. But there are many other times in our lives when time runs out or you are simply out of time. For example, we might use time as an excuse. "I just didn't get it done because I ran out of time." We are constantly looking for more time, unless you are in jail or prison that is. We are told that time is on our side. Is this true? Do you think time is on our side. I guess if you look at it from a life/death situation perspective we really don't know. Is a long life better than a short one? What if you lived a long life but suffered everyday from an illness or disease? What if you were the picture of health but only lived a short life? Time is relative to what we are needing or wanting at that time. Sometimes we wish time would "hurry up". For example, you are going on vacation or bought tickets to your favorite band. Sometimes we wonder, "where has the time gone?" when you wake up and see that alarm clock going off or catch up with an old friend you haven't seen for awhile. Eddie Murphy and Rick James wanted to "Party all the time." Hootie & the Blowfish said that time was "no friend of mine." Foreigner thought that "it feels like the first time." Whatever type of time you need, time will be there. Make time for a friend or family member. I'm outta time. Thanks

The Produce Wizard™ continues to save lives (of produce).

Sarasota, Florida - March 27, 2013 - The Produce Wizard™ is a counter-top device that extends the shelf life of produce for 21+ days without affecting the nutritional value, taste, color & firmness. The Produce Wizard™ has been scientifically proven (tested & endorsed by the Univ. of FL, College of Agriculture and Natural Sciences) to extend the life of your produce. The Produce Wizard™ will keep your bananas fresh for 21+ days and tomatoes for up to 30. Gone are the days of throwing your tomatoes in the refrigerator and your bananas on the counter. Don’t lose flavor and don’t lose your produce.

The Produce Wizard™ works by slowing down the ripening process. Fruits such as tomatoes and bananas excrete ethylene, a gas that speeds up ripening. The Produce Wizard™ slows down the process.

Not a fan of tomatoes and/or bananas? The Produce Wizard™ also works for the following fruits & vegetables: Apricots, Apples, Avocados, Cantaloupes, Honeydew, Kiwis, Mangoes, Melons, Nectarines, Papayas, Passion fruit, Peaches, Pears, Plums, Plantains, Prunes and Quinces.

Dr. Stephen A. Sargent - Professor Postharvest Physiology - University of Florida had the following to say, “So we spent several months evaluating the Produce Wizard™ and at the end we felt that here was a possibility of providing a product for consumers that would significantly save them money at the end of the month by reducing their losses in the kitchen.” Dr. Jeffrey K Brecht - Professor Postharvest Physiology - University of Florida added, "At the conclusion of the research we did in testing the concept of the Produce Wizard™. We could see that we had an appliance that would allow people at home to ripen fruit in the proper conditions so that they would stay in the most desirable state to be tasty for eating for a longer period of time and this would help people be able to enjoy their fruit instead of ending up discarding some of their fruit when it gets overripe.”
So not only are you enjoying the benefits of fresh produce you’re also saving money and helping our environment at the same time. Globally, forty percent of all food gets wasted. Cutting food waste would go a long way towards reducing serious environmental problems. Reducing food waste by half could reduce adverse environmental impacts by 25 percent through reduced landfill use, soil depletion and applications of fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. The Produce Wizard™ will help combat this problem and contribute to a cleaner environment.

The Produce Wizard™ has currently started a campaign on the crowdfunding website "We are very excited about our new campaign and are looking forward to the exposure that Indiegogo will provide. We have to raise a significant amount of funds in order to start production and make the Produce Wizard™ available to the public. A great advantage of Indiegogo is that it allows everyone to receive a "perk" for their donation regardless of the amount and also provides exposure for a product I truly believe can make a global impact", said Vince Arrigo - Inventor & Founder.

Save your Produce, Save your Money, Save the Earth

The Produce Wizard™ and its subsidiaries is a company dedicated to ending food waste and encouraging healthy eating through technology and education.

Think about the last time you purchased a product that actually saved you money. If you don't drive a hybrid car, than this may be a little tougher for some of you. Truth is, it's not often that we might purchase something that will save those hard earned dollars in your wallet/purse. Many times, products that will save yyou money in the future are too expensive to purchase now. So we must decide on products that we know we will get plenty of use. For those of you that eat a lot of fruits and vegetables the Produce Wizard™ is one such product. The Produce Wizard™ is a table-top device that allows you to extend the life of your fruits and vegetables without affecting the nutritional value, taste, color or firmness while also killing 99% of bacteria such as E-coli and salmonella. Bananas will last 21+ days and tomatoes will be fresh for an amazing 30 days. The Produce Wizard™ also works for apricots, avocados, cantaloupes, honeydews, melons, kiwis, mangoes, nectarines, papayas, peaches, pears and plums. Stop throwing away your produce and start saving today.
Save your produce, save your money, save the earth!


Food Waste, it's your problem.   
Produce Wizard™
Ever wonder why we as humans waste so much food? Is it because we don't care? Is it because some of us have never had to go without it? What can we do about such a huge problem? There is no one right answer. But there are many small answers that aren't wrong and will help you  to feel better about the amount of food you are wasting. I get it, for some of you it is probably never a thought that enters your mind. Which is okay, there are many things that we have to worry about in life in order to lead a healthy and productive lifestyle i.e. kids, bills, family etc.
 Here are a few small things we can all do in order to reduce our food waste. 1. When eating out order a meal that you know you can finish, or at least something you know you will take home and finish later. 2. Prepare meals that don't recquire you to use a lot of ingredients. (Many times we might open a package and only use a bit of that ingredient) 3. "Clean your plate" as my parents you to say. We live in a society where we are told that bigger is always better, sometimes it is, but when it comes to your plate small portions are where it's at. You can always get more. 4. Plan ahead. If you are hosting an event and know there is a good chance that there might be leftovers, call your local food bank/pantry and let them know that you would like to help them out. Globally, forty percent of all food gets wasted. I think we can change that number if we all make a conscience effort to do so.
