Buy all your favorite fresh products at 50% off and enjoy the goodness of nature without having to spend a lot of money. These fruits and vegetables are equally healthy and nutritious and are as delectable as their prettier-looking peers.
How does it work?
Those not-so-good-looking fresh products are left to rot in the aisles till they are removed to be dumped in the garbage trucks. Most of the time, such food box does not even make it to the shelves and is discarded at sorting facility and farms.
