Mori, formerly known as Cambridge Crops, is a food tech company focused on extending shelf-life to reduce waste and create more sustainable supply chains.

Mori's all-natural protective layer slows down the spoiling process of fruit, veggies, meats, and seafood to help you enjoy fresher food for longer.

Mori was founded in 2016 by Adam Behrens and Livio Valenti. The company is headquartered in Boston, MA, with offices in Washington, DC; Salinas, CA; and Mexico City, Mexico.


Mori’s proprietary process uses just salt, water, and heat to extract protein from silk and apply it to food, creating natural protection that slows spoiling and keeps food fresher for longer.


Mori is seamlessly integrated into existing production processes, allowing customers across the supply chain to provide people with fresher, better quality food with minimal or no additional capital expenditure.


Mori's technology is protected by 25 granted patents, 35 utility applications, and trade secrets worldwide. Mori Silk™ is a dietary protein, consumable in countries such as the USA, Mexico, and Costa Rica. Many countries, including Canada, Japan, and South Korea, list Mori Silk™ as a Non-Novel and Traditional food ingredient.
