UNDERSTANDING OUR FOOD SYSTEM

Currently, the food system is great at producing food and getting it where it needs to be....but it’s not so great at seeing it get used. At FoodMaven, we capture lost food through an efficient online marketplace, big data optimization technology, and an agile logistics model to make sure it gets eaten. FoodMaven is good for profits, good for people and good for the planet.

WHAT IS LOST FOOD?
Restaurant Supply Denver and Organic Food Supplier
Out-of-Spec

Product that didn’t meet a specific cosmetic, packaging, or dating requirement.

Food B2B Marketplace and Food Oversupply Colorado Springs
Oversupply

Product was overproduced, over-ordered or in less demand.

Food Rescue from Distributors and Food Distribution Logistics Support
Local food

Ranchers, farmers and producers having difficulty reaching commercial kitchens.

HUNGER RELIEF

In a country with such an abundance of food, it’s difficult to understand how over 49 million Americans struggle with food insecurity. We don’t believe in wasting food while people in our communities go without. Anything we cannot sell on our marketplace is donated to hunger relief non-profits. We've provided over 482,600 meals.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

The environmental impact of lost food is astounding. When food decomposes, it produces Methane (CH4), which accounts for about 10% of all U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. Pound for pound, the comparative impact of CH4 is at least 25 times greater than CO2 over a 100-year period. FoodMaven has averted 333 tons of methane and 7,666 tons of CO2 from landfills.
