My Experience

In Louisville, I visited my local Meijer store on Preston Highway. The Flashfood cooler was located in the front of the store and I grabbed the dairy products that I ordered, confirmed my order at the desk, and was back in my car in a matter of 2-3 minutes. It was a streamlined, seamless process.

Once in the cooler, I was astounded by the quality of produce and meat available. I already have plans to do my next grocery haul from the app. Everything you purchase is in-date, though nearing its expiration. The key is to use it soon or to freeze it, a wonderful way to ensure that your family has access to fresh food and produce at a discounted rate.

Food Waste

Did you know that 160,000,000,000 pounds of food in North America ends up in the landfill? Grocery stores are left with a surplus of food items that are reaching their best before date on a daily basis. The timing of when food is deemed unsellable is based on store policy, it typically ranges from a few days to 1-2 weeks.

By selling this food at 50% off the retail price through Flashfood, grocers are able to recover costs (i.e.: reduce shrink), and significantly reduce their carbon footprint. Consumers are able to take advantage of healthier food items like produce, meat and prepared meals that they would ordinarily deem too expensive.

What I Made

I chose some delicious, high-quality cheddar cheese out of the case; once seeing it on the app, I knew it would be a delicious base for a Jalapeño Pimento Cheese.
