Our passion is to reduce commercial food waste



 We simplify the local food distribution channel by meshing supply and demand


Our Story




FoodMesh was created in response to a desire to solve a global problem:
Avoidable food waste and food insecurity



The journey began in October 2015 after co-Founders Jessica and Francisco came across photos of beautiful edible produce headed to waste streams because they were too ripe for retail.
Unable to shake these images, they dedicated the next 6 months to investigate the root causes and scale of the food waste problem. It became clear that the problem is efficient re-distribution for unpredictable off spec product.
This led to the seeding of FoodMesh – a solution to power the circular economy for surplus food using network effects.
Starting in 2017 with a self-serve marketplace designed to simplify food re-distribution by matching demand and supply in a more efficient and intelligent way, today, FoodMesh has successfully provided hundreds of thousands of meals to people and has saved over a million dollars in food value by companies using our apps and services.
In 2019 FoodMesh started a Food Recovery Program where Retailers divert 100% of their surplus daily to charities, then farmers for animal feed. To read more about this program, go to our page: Retail Food Recovery Program.
FoodMesh is now building Regional Food Recovery Networks in partnership with Municipalities and Cities. To learn more, click here.
