Oddbox is a purpose led company fighting food waste with veg boxes which would otherwise have gone to waste. A third of all food grown goes to waste before it has even left the farm because it might be too small or the wrong shape. Oddbox collects fruit and veg which would otherwise go to spare and delivers them to their subscribers. This short article explains what Oddbox is, who it is for and how employers can benefit from using Oddbox.
What is Oddbox?
Oddbox (Oddbox Delivery Ltd) is a UK based company which sources fruit and veg from farmers which would otherwise have gone to waste and delivers them to subscribers in boxes. Subscribers can specify the fruit and veg preferences as well as how frequently they wish to receive a box.
How Oddbox fights food waste
Oddbox fights food waste by contacting farmers in the UK every week to identify produce which would otherwise go to waste. Oddbox will then collect the food and deliver it to subscribers which in turn helps rescue carbon emissions which would otherwise go to waste. Oddbox helps subscribers understand the impact of their choices by determining the carbon emissions and water saved for each food box. Moreover, Oddbox delivers responsibly by only offering overnight deliveries and to certain postcodes.
