Startup To The Rescue Of Ugly Produce

post-image

Sydney social enterprise Good & Fugly are combating the enormous environmental issue of so-called “ugly produce”. Billions of pounds of produce go to waste every year, 7.6 million tonnes— and cost the Australian economy around 36.6 billion every year. An estimate of about 312kg per person, and cost the average consumer $2,000 to $2,500 per household per year. 

Not anymore, Good & Fugly has launched a ‘rescue’ hotline for farmers for the Good & Fugly team to purchase surplus fruits and vegetables that would otherwise go to waste when produce retailers reject them due to not meeting beauty standards.
