Podcast: Just a Taste – Patrick Bultema of FoodMaven


With hundreds of billions of dollars lost each year to food waste, the food system has a serious oversupply issue. Food waste continues to be a massive problem while 68% of farmers are on the verge of bankruptcy and 42 million Americans are food insecure. Notice the discrepancy here? So does FoodMaven.

Lots of people have tried to solve the food waste problem, but FoodMaven’s model, which is currently running out of and will be expanding from Colorado, is different. After all, the startup was able to secure investor funding and board representation from big-names like Walter Robb, who is the former co-CEO of Whole Foods, and the Walton family.

Patrick Bultema is chairman, CEO, and co-founder of FoodMaven. This startup ain’t his first rodeo though; FoodMaven is “CEO Gig #7” for him. In this episode of Just a Taste, Patrick tells us all about the causes and effects of food waste as well as FoodMaven’s innovative solutions to this pressing issue.
