Sustainable food processing startup leases 11K sq. ft. flex space at Kearny Point

Kearny Point Shipyard on Wednesday announced that NutriCleanse, a sustainable food processing startup, leased 11,000 square feet at Kearny Point’s Building 78.

NutriCleanse uses an innovative organic, non-thermal technology called Neo-Pure to pasteurize a wide range of low-moisture foods such as nuts and seeds. Designed to maintain natural food quality while delivering a 99.999% pathogen reduction, Neo-Pure is the highest in food safety standards. Since NutriCleanse’s process does not rely on heat, steam or chemical gas, the natural taste, smell, texture, nutrition and shelf life of food are maintained, just as nature intended.

“We are thrilled to be part of the dynamic Kearny Point community, close to the Port of Newark, Newark airport and easy access to the New Jersey Turnpike, (Interstate) 280 and Garden State Parkway, as well as easy access to our markets in New York City and the entire tri-state region,” Yosef Klein, director of NutriCleanse, said.

The Kearny Point campus is guided by the Hugo Neu Corp. The 130-acre site embodies adaptive building reuse, green infrastructure, urban ecology restoration and renewable energy solutions.

Building 78 also allows for the NutriCleanse team to be part of a thriving startup community with a whole host of amenities and resources for small businesses. Over 200 businesses make Kearny Point their home, with more than half of them being women- or minority-owned.

“We are happy to have NutriCleanse in one of our anchor spaces here in Building 78. Kearny Point is currently home to a number of innovative food innovation and technology companies that are focused on sustainable food systems,” Mike Meyer, Hugo Neu Corp.’s director of development, said.
