Base Food, a Tokyo-based food tech company that creates nutritionally complete pantry staples, launched a new product called Base Bread on April 22 at an auspicious time, given grocery store shortages due to the COVID-19 outbreak and consumers’ need for flexible, healthy work-from-home meal options.
Founded in Tokyo by Shun Hashimoto, Base Food brings a unique approach to food development. Base Food’s core products (Base Pasta and Base Bread) deliver the same satisfying taste of conventional dietary staples, but with nutrient profiles never-before-seen in their respective categories. Shun’s mission to transform the “base” element of any meal has generated significant buzz in Japan.
The company has been tracking how COVID-19 has affected the availability of popular food items. “With its supercharged nutrient profile, 365 day shelf life in the freezer and direct-to-your door delivery availability, we hope Base Bread can alleviate some of the issues people are facing during these difficult times” said Shun Hashimoto, Base Food CEO. After seeing more of the initial impacts of COVID-19 in Asia, the Base Food team rushed harder to bring its Base Bread product to the US.
Base Food’s products are available for delivery via their website. After shipment, the products take 1-2 days to arrive. With contactless delivery, the customers can get a long-lasting supply of Base Food products, which are marked by their clean ingredients and nutrient balance.
Base Bread is the world’s first nutritionally balanced bread, containing 1/3 of the recommended daily values in 1 meal (2 bread rolls). The product is available for sale on the Base Food US website.
Base Bread ships to seven states on the west coast including Arizona, Oregon, California, Colorado, Nevada, Utah and Washington State. Customers can choose between monthly delivery and a one-time subscription option.
