Formed in 2010, TerViva is an agriculture and food technology company that delivers tasty and nourishing protein and oil ingredients from the pongamia tree that are responsibly-sourced and more sustainable than most oilseed crops used today. Our mission is to plant millions of trees to feed billions of people. We provide patented high-yielding/low-input pongamia trees to growers for harvest, and we also wild-harvest fair-trade pongamia beans to make sustainable food ingredients using proprietary bean processing methods with commercially available technology. Our business model helps farmers feed people while taking care of the planet.
