It helps the farmer, it helps the customer, it helps the food delivery chain, and it helps the environment. Everyone wins.

Padma meets a few of our favorite Imperfectionists

When I was a kid, I was the one who had to dump the fruit. With Imperfect, we can take what was once thrown away to become useful. It makes a substantial difference for the grower.

My health has dramatically improved since shopping with Imperfect Foods. I’ve been more conscious and aware of the food I’m eating so this has truly helped.

Ash Mac

Imperfect Foods Customer

We embrace being perfectly imperfect. Some of our employees are coming out of the judicial system and Imperfect gives them a second chance. Our employees have a voice, support, and are part of decision‑making.

We want to find new ways to save food and build a sustainable food system. We want happy growers and producers, happy employees, and happy customers.
