Some food for thought: One-third of the world's food goes to waste every year. In the U.S., about 40 percent of our food gets thrown out. It's happening on the farm, at the grocery store and in our own homes.
Doug Rauch wants to take wholesome food that people and industry throw away - cook it and sell it at low cost as prepared meals. Doug states ''This is about trying to tackle a very large social challenge we have that is going to create a health care tsunami in cost if we don't do something about it. I don't regard Daily Table as the only solution — there are wonderful innovative ideas out there — but I certainly think it is part of and is an innovative approach to trying to find our way to a solution.''
Here at PACKLAB, we think this is a great idea and can't help wondering what products could spin off from this service and how creative packaging design could support such a venture initiative like this.
