About

 

We believe food deserves to be treated and preserved in a better way! Quva is a one-of-a-kind system that helps you keep your food fresh, up to five times longer. This patented system blends perfectly into your kitchen interior and is incredibly easy to use.  Quva helps you to enjoy better food and reduce waste.

 

 

Oxygen has deteriorating effects on food. When air is evacuated from a bag or container with food, and sealed with an airtight seal, the food is protected from these negative effects. This is why food stored in vacuum can stay fresh up to five times longer. Vacuum conditions also prevent your food from spoiling from freezer burn. The Quva system works with re-usable zipper bags, containers and other innovative accessories such as the wine saver. Saving food has never been this easy!

Unsurprisingly, sous-vide cooking is becoming increasingly popular with home cooks. Keeping the juices and rich flavors inside while slowly cooking your food leads to unparalleled results. There is no easier and faster way to prepare your food for sous-vide cooking, than by using Quva and its specially designed vacuum bags. Make your dinners unforgettable.

 

 

Traditional marinades take hours to slowly infuse flavor into food. With the Quva vacuum mode this takes less than 10 minutes. The specially designed fast marinade container, combined with the marinade function on the device, runs a number of cycles of removing air and releasing the vacuum in order to deeply infuse the marinade in your food. You’ll be ready for your BBQ in no time!

 

According to calculations of the FAO (Food & Agriculture Organisation), currently at least one-third of all produced food is wasted.

Residential consumers account for almost half of all food waste. This not only means waste of the actual food, but imagine all the resources put into growing, preparing, transporting, retailing and bringing the food home before it is ultimately thrown out.  

Unsurprisingly people want to do something about this and Quva is here to help.

 

   

  

 

   

 

 

 

 

 We started the development of the Quva system in early 2016. Since then a great team of engineers, designers and foodlovers has worked on making Quva the best vacuum food saving systems on the market, by improving the range of products one step at a time. Our engineers were challenged to make a super durable, detachable and retractable tube system and to make a double spring and damper pop-up system for effortless operation. Designing the system to block liquids from entering the system gave our lead engineer some sleepless nights, but after several prototypes we managed to develop a rock solid solution. 

At Quva we not only share a passion for food, we also love engineering and design challenges!

 

In order to deliver a product that can last in your kitchen for at least 10 years, Quva has teamed up with a reputable A-brand manufacturer from Asia. Together with the Quva engineering team they have worked tirelessly to prepare for production. We plan to order the production tools in January of 2018. After that, several rounds of producing, testing and improving are scheduled, leading up to the start of mass production and distribution of top quality products in July of 2018.

Mounting the Quva system is effortless. The hardest part is choosing the position in your kitchen where you want it, and drilling a 4” hole. After that it is a simple 6 step installation that requires nothing more than two hands and a screwdriver. No additional drilling or screwing necessary! More detailed instructions on the installation can be found on the Quva website.

At Quva we care about food and we care about our planet. We believe that we can make an impact by inspiring people with a unique and easy to use product. We started rethinking the way we store food and designing our product range early on in 2016. Our journey has been intense and we have faced several setbacks, but we’ve managed to overcome them all. We are blessed with a number of very supportive friends, partners and investors that have a strong belief in the Quva products and team. We’ve made it to the point of finalizing the designs for ordering production tools. 

With your help we can produce and ship the first batches of products, so join the vacuum food saving revolution!

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing a product with over 80 different parts that should perform at least 10 years in a kitchen and a range of accessories is a complex challenge. That is why we have decided to do the development of the products first with a great team and only start crowdfunding at a very late stage.
We have a number of friends that have invested significantly in the development limiting the risk of delays and other unforeseen circumstances after the crowdfunding start. Quva has a professional Asian manufacturing partner that is working for several A brands, lined up to start production. Our production partner has also invested hundreds of engineering hours in making Quva a great product.
We start crowdfunding at a moment that we are relatively certain not to encounter major issues in preparing for production start. However we know from experience that unexpected challenges will arise. We pledge to keep our backers well-informed in a timely manner throughout the entire process to get to production start and to do everything we can to deliver the Quva products to you as planned.
