Anova’s Commitment

People, Product, Planet

Here at Anova, we believe in leading by example, by taking action and by being radically transparent. We stand up for the things that matter to us not just because it’s good for business, but because it’s the right thing to do.

That is why as a company, we are committed to giving back to our community through local charitable partnerships. We are committed to building an inclusive, diverse office culture where people always come first. We are committed to reducing our impact on the planet by infusing sustainability into the core of our business. And we are committed to building partnerships to solve problems.

We won’t always get it right and we have a long way to go, but we are excited to take you on this journey with us.

Charity Partnerships

Making a difference in our own backyard

Hunger is a serious problem in San Francisco and Marin, where 1 in 5 people struggle to find their next meal. Anova proudly partners with two local charities to fight hunger in the Bay area.

San Francisco-Marin Food Bank

During the 2019 holiday season, Anova donated 20,000 meals to the SF-Marin Food Bank to support children and families in need. Each meal helped make the difference between going to bed hungry or going to bed happy and healthy.

Meals on Wheels

Anova helps deliver meals to senior citizens in our community by working closely with the Meals on Wheels San Francisco Adopt-A-Building Program. Since October 2019, Anova employees have collectively volunteered over 29 hours and delivered 333 meals to seniors in our neighborhood.

Product Sustainability

Good for the planet, good for us.

Our team is working hard in 2020 to create programs that reduce the environmental impacts of our products and packaging. These include:

  • Introducing 100% eco-friendly packaging, an initiative currently under development

  • Replacing virgin materials with recycled materials in our product development where possible

  • Launching a refurbishment program to give our customers a longer lasting, more sustainable product

We’ve also listened to your concerns about the environmental impact of cooking with plastic bags. It’s an industry wide issue with no easy solution. While we explore alternate options, we suggest you check out the reusable, eco-friendly, BPA-free Anova Stasher Bag. For those of you who prefer traditional bags, find out how you can properly recycle your bags post cook here.

People First

Working at Anova

Anova started with the idea that everybody should have a seat at the table, no matter where you are from, what gender you are or what you believe. This value has been important since day one and continues to be a key driver of our unique company culture. We have a diverse workforce consisting of people from all over the world and encourage inclusivity across the board. We work hard to create a space where our employees feel included and respected.
