About Terviva

Terviva is a food and agriculture company committed to transform the food and agriculture industry by making food production more accessible and equitable to farmers, and more sustainable for our communities and our planet.

We do this by cultivating a non-GMO, sustainable tree crop called Pongamia that produces beans with dramatically higher yields than other oilseed crops. Through our extensive R&D, we have developed our proprietary bean processing technology that enables us to produce tasty and nourishing plant-based oil and protein food ingredients.

Our Pongamia trees not only produce beans for sustainable food ingredients; they also restore farmland to productive use, thus helping farmers feed people while taking care of the planet.
Terviva values diversity of thought, culture and biology. We strive towards diversity and inclusion as an essential part of who we are. We recruit teammates from all backgrounds, experiences and perspectives because we know our diversity makes us stronger.
