FoodMaven launches consumer grocery with FoodMaven Warehouse
Customers in Colorado Springs and Denver can start ordering today
FoodMaven launched a drive through and delivery bulk grocery service in Colorado. FoodMaven is temporarily opening its inventory to consumers this week to support food security in Colorado communities. Bulk food items will be available from FoodMaven through a pickup or delivery option. The company sees this line of business as a true compliment to its mission of seeing All food used with good purpose.
Traditionally, FoodMaven has sought to bring new logistic efficiencies into the food system to reduce waste and help food service providers source local and sustainable food. At least 40% of food produced in the US is wasted due to supply chain inefficiencies, damage or imperfections. FoodMaven’s local supply chain is ideal to withstand disruptions in the national and global supply chain that characterize retail grocery.
“There is plenty of food in the supply chain right now, the system is just struggling to readjust to the new situation,” says Ben Deda, CEO of FoodMaven. “We need to create a food system that is flexible enough to adjust these imbalances.” During this time, the company will continue to serve its primary customer base: restaurants, hospitality and institutions.
FoodMaven is committed to providing affordable and convenient groceries during this time of uncertainty. Offerings from FoodMaven include Colorado grown products like potatoes, shallots and grains, as well as frozen chicken and beef. Items are packaged in bulk and have wholesale pricing due to the food service focus of FoodMaven’s business. Customers in Colorado Springs and Denver can sign up for groceries today by visiting https://foodmaven.com/foodmaven-warehouse/.
FoodMaven creates new pathways for lost food due to oversupply, out-of-spec or local food without effective distribution channels. FoodMaven sells this food through an online marketplace to restaurants and institutions like universities and hotels. Food not sold gets donated to hunger-relief organizations to fulfill its mission of all food used with good purpose. FoodMaven is good for profits, good for people and good for the planet.
