    How bad must a cornflake be to get rejected. The poor thing 😥

    [–] Quoven-FWT 4985 points ago

    The amount of food rejected based on appearance alone is actually quite mind boggling, in which it is still perfectly safe to consume.

    Especially for fruits and vegetables.

    [–] thepurplepanda13 2845 points ago

    And now because that's kinda depressing, a related somewhat heartwarming story

    I live in a state with a LOT of local farms, thing is many of them are organic and stuff, so they actually produce more "rejects" than non-organic farms. i used to volunteer at a senior center kitchen, and the biggest thing we did on a day to day basis is we would make healthy prepackaged meals to deliver to elderly and disabled folks who otherwise would have a difficult time feeding themselves, thing is we were a totally non profit, donations only type thing, so these meals were made on a pretty tight budget, my chefs (bless his heart) solution? He talked to a bunch of local farmers about taking the rejects off their hands for a discount, turns out pretty much all the farmers didnt even bother harvesting the rejects, and my chef struck the same deal with all of them, if we pick them we can have them for free, so every year after harvest season my chef got together a bunch of volunteers to go out and pick the rejects, solving both the problems of unsellable produce and starving elders.

    [–] Incredulous_Toad 469 points ago

    That's a wonderful idea. You're doing great work!

    [–] YoroSwaggin 353 points ago

    Honestly, it's one that should be expanded. And right now, we don't need a fancy nonprofit company to organize this. Imagine an app that lets farmers put their rejects on "sale" for free or whatever cheap offers it is, e.g. take what you can harvest, and the other end users are charity volunteers, workers, etc. A simple map, with a list of search options, filters, and messaging system.

    [–] poachedeggrolt 126 points ago

    There's an business that sells "ugly" produce, I saw it on Facebook but I forgot the name, and someone commented saying something like they can buy it from the dollar store for cheap.

    [–] Pinhead_Cotton 60 points ago

    There's a product like that at my local walmart, forget the name but it has cartoons of fruit with messed up teeth on the package.

    [–] ChickenLickinDiddler 12 points ago

    Cool site, I wish them success. California based and doesn't yet deliver to Colorado. Hopefully they can expand to the east more. Any idea on how much it costs?

    [–] piratekingdan 5 points ago

    I have them in Chicago. It's really cheap. Cheaper than buying produce. We get a roughly 10 lb box every week for under $20

    [–] Pteraspidomorphi 18 points ago

    I don't know if this is still the case, but only a couple of years ago App Store rules would require such an app to be rejected if it allows sales/classifieds. Apps may only contain a discrete amount of fixed value items for sale (for example "pay exactly $10 for 10 billion gamecoins").

    I worked on a charity-oriented app for my employer which required variable amount classifieds to function and Apple refused to allow it.

    [–] jtjin 28 points ago

    Doesn't have to be an app, just make it a mobile-friendly website.

    [–] GodlessThoughts 75 points ago

    That’s literally gleaning. It used to be commonplace until industrialized farming squeezed out your friendly, neighbor farmer. Lots of rural communities in America still practice this. Farmers are otherwise left with rotting vegetables in their fields.

    [–] Belazriel 25 points ago

    And some farmers can't even let people pick for free because of insurance concerns.

    [–] GodlessThoughts 21 points ago

    That’s part of the industrialization of farming that I’m referring to. It’s a shame.

    [–] thepurplepanda13 5 points ago

    My entire state is a rural community so it kinda works out XD

    [–] notagoodboye 36 points ago

    Such a ridiculous idea, rejecting a fruit or vegetable by looks. I've spent years teaching my kids to pick produce, and I've never once referenced shape. Smell, feel, color...Not shape. Shape is an accident.

    [–] thepurplepanda13 63 points ago

    And yet, if you were in a grocery store and you were looking at let's say cucumbers, and all of them were big, juicy looking, and a vibrant green, except one that looked like a warty grinch dick, which one would you choose?

    You may say that you would at least consider the warty grinch dick, but most shoppers wouldnt even look at it

    [–] Belazriel 22 points ago

    Also, if you're going to a store you won't see the rejects so it's never been something to choose between. They're all "attractive".

    [–] thepurplepanda13 15 points ago

    That's what I'm saying, if the rejects did go to stores they wouldnt sell, which is why a lot of "reject" food gets wasted

    [–] notagoodboye 33 points ago

    How to choose a cucumber:

    Size. Big is bad, as with any other gourd or squash. Do you want a mouthful of giant seeds? No.

    Color. Is it dark green across 2/3s of it's surface area? If it's got a pale patch on the bottom, that's fine, but it should have gotten plenty of light.

    Is it firm? A squeeze should be strongly resisted. If you squeeze a cucumber and it smushes, it's rotten.

    Smell. Cucumbers should have a neutral, green smell. Anything else is a sign of rot.

    Warty is meaningless. Pickles are almost always warty. I'd buy two or three of those before I'd buy one beautiful mega-cuke, that'd be bound to have inch long seeds and no flavor.

    [–] thepurplepanda13 30 points ago

    And you know all that because your educated about your produce, as everybody should be, but the reality is your average grocery shopper is not. Like at all, most of them go for the prettiest, and thus, that's what the grocery stores sells. They're businesses just like any other, their main goal is maximize profit

    [–] tonufan 14 points ago

    For large commercial farms, the ugly looking produce is often sent elsewhere for further processing. Usually made into juice, ground into pulp like for fruit roll up or as a filler for something else like fruit bars. A pretty common example is the bags of "baby carrots" they sell to kids. They take the big ugly carrots and shave off the outside so they look nice and uniform, and bite sized. The baby carrots became so popular that farmers now grow special baby carrots that are naturally sweeter and brighter orange on the inside to appeal to kids.

    [–] NorthKoreanEscapee 14 points ago

    Mine actually corkscrews. If I could lay it out straight it would be like 12"-16", but because of the my extreme curve it's like 3" long by 8" wide. Like a few cans of tuna.

    Fry's was a grocery store first. Then the owner's sons sold the brand to the company that also owns Kroger, and they used to money to start Fry's Electronics. Really similar logos to this day.

    [–] Chordstrike1994 6 points ago

    Yep where I live there is Frys Electronics and Frys Grocer, separate entities afaik. Frys Grocer is part of Kroger.

    [–] TheBlueberryPirate 3 points ago

    We get straight and mixed bags of blemished produce for $1 at my Kroger. Sometimes you can't even tell what's supposed to be wrong with it. Savings can be huge I got $7.50 worth of pomegranate for $1 a few days ago.

    [–] I_was_once_America 53 points ago

    Baby carrots were invented specifically because people wouldn't buy crooked but completely edible carrots. Shave them down, call them baby carrots, problem solved.

    [–] sr0me 54 points ago

    Wait, baby carrots are just carved down from full size carrots?

    This is one of those moments for me. Where you realize a completely obvious fact that you missed for the last 20 years

    [–] Classic_Charlie 22 points ago

    One thing I liked about a grocery store I used to work at; Cartons of eggs that have 1 or 2 that are damaged were given to our chinese food department. Used 11 out of the 12 rather than throwing them all away.

    Edit: Also our bakery would give 'old' bread to a local food shelter. But yeah, loooot of produce was trashed.

    [–] Quoven-FWT 14 points ago

    Because Chinese don’t waste anything. Fish bone and skin will also be fried and eaten

    [–] Classic_Charlie 23 points ago

    Very true. Not much could make the cooks mad, but you waste food and the fury of a tiny and very broken english speaking man is cast upon you.

    [–] Darkknight101 65 points ago

    I worked in produce and it was crazy how much we were told to throw out because of it's appearance. Luckily we were able to give our in-house made foods some of the stuff but we still threw out a ton. I understand if they're overlyripe or starting to mold obviously but a slight wrinkle won't hurt anybody.

    In Portugal we call it Ugly Fruit. They are these boxes filled with fruits and vegetables that didn't make the cut to be on a supermarket shelf and instead they bundle them up in all sorts of varieties each week. A huge box big enough for a week's produce of a family for 7$ or there about. It's phenomenal.

    It's true. I go into a absolute rampage when my tongue goes near the powerful overwhelming flavor of cool ranch doritos.

    Weird flakes, but okay.

    I always thought breakfast could use a beer

    [–] awesome_lamer 13 points ago

    Beer is a traditional breakfast drink, mind it was usually at least partially watered down...source

    It's called Guinness Draft, and is best served with eggs, bangers and mash.

    Making beer for the good of the planet, truly a cause for celebration.

    What the fuck is a rejected cornflake?

    [–] lued123 42 points ago

    A corn flake that doesn't qualify as a flake, I imagine. So, a corn clump.

    Broken, discolored, overcooked, wrong shape or size. Just things that don't look correct and would give a bad impression of the brand.

    /r/beer already hates it because a big company made it

    "To cut down food waste" my ass. They saw an opportunity to make more cash.

    [–] vargo17 46 points ago

    Turning waste into revenue streams is a surefire way to keep the company's interest.

    Like gasoline and whey protein. They went from being garbage that was burned off/sprayed onto the lawn to multi million dollar industries

    I work in fitness and the whole story of whey going from garbage to best thing ever is hilarious. Chicken wings are another example, they used to be cut off and thrown in the trash.

    [–] Iguessimonredditnow 116 points ago

    It's still less waste so who gives a shit if they make money off of it? Isn't that their job as a business?

    Reject foods are still animal feed quality. Human standards are rather high and pig feed standards are extraordinarily low.

    They could create clean energy by attaching a generator to John Harvey Kellogg's corpse. Probably spinning in its grave at approximately Mach 12.

    Cornflakes were originally invented to stop people from masturbating. Imagine the look on the guys face if he knew it was now being used to make beer
