South-West London based startup, Tasty Misfits, are on a mission to fight food waste and give consumers the chance to buy delicious, imperfect-looking or surplus produce at a discount.
Rather than fruit and veg going to waste, the startup saves the perfectly tasty, albeit a little wonky looking, fruits and vegetables from going to landfill and helps consumers eat healthier, at a price they can afford.
The majority of the misshapen and over or undersized fruits and vegetables would otherwise not be sold, be sold in wholesale markets for very low prices or sold for animal feed or processing. Tasty Misfits are able to buy the produce at a fair discounted price and pass on the discount to their customers.
The social enterprise has been in full time operations since May 2016. The team at Tasty Misfits are determined to expand their business and create awareness around the subject of surplus food and food waste.
Tasty Misfits are selling veg and fruit and veg boxes online to consumers for delivery to their homes. Veg box prices start as low as £5.50 for a small veg box for two people, excluding delivery. In addition, wonky fruit boxes are available for companies who’d like them delivered direct to their offices.
