Founded in 2017, Goodr is a sustainable food waste management platform that leverages technology to reduce food waste and combat hunger. Goodr provides an end-to-end solution for businesses seeking to earn money from their edible food waste by donating it to local nonprofit organizations. The platform provides the logistics, analytics, and security for businesses to earn deductions under the PATH act in compliance with the Internal Revenue Services (IRS).
Goodr views hunger as a solvable logistical problem, and not an issue of resource scarcity. American consumers waste 161 billion pounds of food every year, 40% of all food produced in this country. It’s estimated that food waste takes up an estimated 27% of landfills. In America, Food Waste has tripled over the past twenty years. Goodr offers a turnkey solution that provides the logistical coordination of donations, and maintains strict compliance with the PATH Act’s requirements. Goodr’s blockchain-enabled platform also provides an IRS audit-friendly donation record, real-time food waste analytics, geo-tagging hardware to guarantee food quality and community impact reports. Its model aims to provide a triple-win: improve business’ bottom line through tax deductions, reduce greenhouse emissions from landfills, and use edible food waste to reduce hunger.
