An Insider's view of FoodMaven

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We’re trying to solve a big problem–food waste. How do we bring more agility to the industry? A major hurdle to agility is pricing, so we’re introducing price transparency. We’re sharing pricing data with customers to help them make faster buying decisions and hope this has an impact on food waste.

How does the company support your career growth?

FoodMaven has always supported my desire to grow within the company. I was recently given the opportunity to take on a new position. I have learned so much about food waste and ways to combat this major issue. I'm always learning something new each day at work, and to me, that is so valuable.
