Imperfect Foods, an online grocer committed to eliminating food waste and building a better food system for everyone, has announced that the company will begin delivering weekly groceries in the Tucson area.
The company sources surplus food and imperfect produce directly from farmers, growers and food purveyors and delivers these goods directly to customers’ doors through a customizable subscription service that’s less than grocery store prices.
“We’re thrilled to bring Imperfect Foods to Arizona, where together we can take a bite out of food waste and build a better food system,” said Maureen Shea, Imperfect’s Chief Experience Officer. “We opened our customer care center in Tucson in 2019 and we’re so proud to have since added over 100 jobs in the Tucson area. This expansion builds on our commitment to driving access to quality, affordable food across the state and supporting more Southern AZ farmers, suppliers and producers.”
Imperfect Foods offers 50-60 produce items, both conventional and organic options, and 200 shelf-stable grocery items like lentils, dairy, proteins, quinoa, olive oil and bread to round out all grocery shopping needs. Boxes are 100% customizable to fit each customer’s needs. The total price is based on food selection, box size, and choice of conventional vs. organic produce.
Imperfect’s grocery offerings are often priced 30% less than what consumers typically pay. Imperfect Foods will serve Tucson each week on Thursdays. Customers can order at imperfectfoods.com/join.
