We mean it – hideous produce. It contains all of the same nutrients and flavor as the pretty stuff, but when you buy it, you get it at a discount while doing your part in reducing food waste. There are many companies that offer weekly deliveries of produce deemed “too ugly” to wind up on grocery store shelves. Imperfect Foods, Hungry Harvest, Perfectly Imperfect Produce, and Farmbox Direct are just some of the companies that sell the grocery supply surplus at a discount. By the time it winds up in your cart or sauce, you won’t care what it looks like.
