Food startup Hungryroot uses AI to reduce waste, a major climate offender

Diana Olick of CNBC reports on a startup that is reducing food waste.

The C3 Take
  • Food waste is a major problem in the U.S., with about one-third of food produced ending up in landfills, contributing to greenhouse gas emissions.
  • The startup Hungryroot uses AI to curate grocery deliveries tailored to each customer’s preferences and needs based on detailed questions.
  • Their model allows them to send only the precise amounts of foods the customer will use for meal kits and recipes, significantly reducing food waste compared to traditional grocery shopping.
  • The company claims their processes lead to 80% less food waste at their facilities versus traditional supermarkets.

“The company can reduce its own waste as well. If it determines that a user has no preference between broccoli and Brussels sprouts, and the company happens to have more broccoli in its warehouse, that’s what they’ll recommend.”
