About Imperfect
Imperfect Foods was founded in 2015 with a mission to reduce food waste and build a better food system for everyone.

Our customers can get the healthy, seasonal produce they want alongside the grocery staples they rely on, without having to compromise their budget or values. We’re proving that doing the right thing for the planet doesn’t have to cost more, and that shopping for quality ingredients can support the people and resources that it takes to grow our favorite foods.
