Pure Flavor® takes off – NASA style!

Supplying the International Space Station (ISS) with bell peppers

Pure Flavor® is pleased to announce that they have provided greenhouse grown bell peppers for the crew members of the International Space Station (ISS). These peppers will be part of the fresh food supply delivered on the Space X-4 cargo flight.

On Sept 21st, Space X – 4 began its cargo flight from Cape Canaveral, FL to bring supplies to ISS including a list of highly nutritious fresh fruits and vegetables. Bell Peppers are an excellent source of Vitamin B6, Vitamin C and folacin, all crucial parts to a balanced and healthy diet.

“We are honoured to be part of this adventure to bring fresh vegetables to space.” stated Matthew Mastronardi, Chief Marketing Officer at Pure Flavor®. “All of us at Pure Flavor® are very excited to be working with NASA in their journey to explore the universe in a healthy way.”




Early in the space program prepared meals for astronauts in space were only available in semi-liquid form stored in specially designed packages. A few short decades later, technology has evolved and has given astronauts the ability to have more variety and better food selections which include some fresh fruits and vegetables.

Pure Flavor® would like to thank NASA for including us in this amazing journey and look forward to other future opportunities. The company wishes the crew members all the best and have a safe return flight back to earth.
