Our story

We’re here because we’re trying to solve a big problem that impacts us all.


FoodMesh was created in response to a shared desire to help organizations address 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 landfill because it was too ripe for retail.

Unable to shake these images, they started to investigate the root causes and scale of the food-waste problem.

They learned that food was often wasted because it was easier and cheaper for food businesses to pay to have their overstock, close-to-expiry, aesthetically imperfect, and mislabelled food sent to landfills than to find an alternative use for it.

This led to the seeding of FoodMesh – a solution to power the circular economy for surplus food.
