Food waste is the world’s most illogical problem and we all have a role to play in addressing it. For far too long, food waste was simply considered a cost of doing business, but between the profit potential and environmental imperative, the truth says otherwise. Phood was built at the intersection of smart business and sustainability to drive impact and help build back a more efficient business as usual.
Meet the Founder
Luc Dang grew up in rural Connecticut with rescued mustangs and bee hives, giving his family’s leftover eggs to local restaurants. When he graduated college and went into corporate finance, he was quickly and subconsciously swayed away from his sustainable roots...until he came across a headline that read “40% of all food produced in the U.S. never makes it to a consumer.” That day in 2015, Phood was born and he never turned back. Today, Luc is recognized by Forbes 30 Under 30 as a leader in sustainability and is an emerging thought leader in the power of source reduction.
