Our vision

A world where everyone has the food they need and none of it goes to waste

People need access to fresh food to live happy and healthy lives, but one-third of what we grow goes uneaten. We’re working to fix that.


Eliminating food waste is only the beginning

By building technology to reduce food waste, we also cut back on water use and carbon emissions throughout the fresh supply chain. We’re proud to contribute to making our world more sustainable, all while delivering business impact for our customers.


The benefits of better tech continue to grow

As more and more grocers adopt the Afresh platform, we’re seeing meaningful impact on communities and the planet.
