Phood uses computer vision and artificial intelligence to stop food waste before it starts. By attacking waste at the source, Phood directly impacts the supply chain and offers data-driven insights that help foodservice operations cut costs and maximize profitability.


Beyond the bottom line, Phood’s affordable and easy-to-use solution equips foodservice providers to be leaders in the fight against our most actionable solution to climate change.


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 an emerging leader in sustainability and has spoken across the world with the United Nations and Harvard's Food Law and Policy Clinic. He is interested in the business opportunity of food waste and motivated by the power of corporate social responsibility.
