According to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization, nearly one-third of all food produced in America ends up as waste. A lot of this is food that has been deemed unsaleable because it is misshapen or imperfect. A new concept is hoping to address food waste by providing a market for imperfect food. Canada-based Flashfood began in 2016 with an app on which grocers could post deals on their surplus food. Users could see the deals, pay through their phone and pick their items up the same day. Now, Flashfood have come up with a new concept in which unsaleable ‘ugly’ foods are packaged into food boxes and shipped directly to consumers.
