SOME PRODUCE NEVER MAKE IT TO MARKET
Nearly 40% of produce goes to waste in the United States, some of that never even leaving the farms. On the other end, there are approximately 40 million people in the States that are food insecure. How do we narrow that gap?
PERFECTLY IMPERFECT PRODUCE
What if you could get produce at a lower cost? What if you didn't have to sacrifice quality and time in order to eat healthier?
We eat with our eyes first, and the food eco-system has been built to sell us 'perfect' produce. Fruits and vegetables that look good. Looks don't matter, quality does.
Combating food waste and food insecurity starts with ensuring we're using everything that we're growing.
Hunger is not caused by a scarcity of food, but a scarcity of democracy.

BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN FARMERS AND YOUR TABLE
Marrying the needs of the farmers and the needs of consumers helps us get closer to zero waste when it comes to combating agriculture and food insecurity. Through the use of data, we help farmers predict, manage and find a market for their imperfect produce. This allows consumers to have access to quality fruits and vegetables at reduced costs. Every pound of produce we are able to rescue brings us that much close to our goal of a zero waste and food secure society.
