Almost 40% of all food produced in the US is wasted. In addition, 10% of people in the US are food insecure - which means the food wasted could feed those who are in need and there would still be food left over.

This is what shocked Rafael Garrido and his wife Monica into action, together creating a digital marketplace dedicated to helping food retailers earn revenue and new clients by selling their food before it is wasted. Their app LOVVETT is taking South Florida by storm.
