Supermarket groceries spend weeks or even months being stored and transported before arriving on the shelf, and they’re often picked well before they’re ripe because of this. Companies such as FreshRealm have aimed to improve on this, promising food from farm to table in around two days by directly connecting individual producers and consumers through the US postal system. Now a platform from Australia called RipeNearMe is enabling local growers to share their excess fruit and vegetables, notifying neighbors of the best time to pick up the produce in its prime.
