Flashfood works with supermarkets to sell groceries that are approaching their sell by date at steep discounts. This is enabled via an app that locates stores and identifies the specific foods that are available. The foods, like produce and meat, are fresh and perfectly good to eat. This cuts food waste (a greenhouse gas producer in landfills), adds revenue for stores, and saves shoppers money.

Hospitality is the art of making everyone, no matter who they are, feel comfortable and special.
Claire and her friend Natalie went to dinner after a show in London. It was Natalie's birthday, but she had never seen a Happy Birthday message written in chocolate the way that so many people have seen.She was blind.But the chef, from Luciano's, who had no advance warning of their arrival or need, did something extraordinary.Happy Birthday was written in Braille, the chocolate set hard, so Natalie could read the words like never before.An incredible effort of inclusion that personifies the art of hospitality.
