Why Did We Start Peko Produce?
58% of all food produced in Canada is wasted or lost every year. Within produce alone, $3.1 billion worth is rejected every year purely for cosmetic reasons.
Meanwhile, Canada is experiencing the highest increase in food costs since 2010, translating to $695 per family of four annually.
Food waste also comes with an environmental cost: 8-10% of greenhouse gases emission responsible for the climate crisis comes from food wasted at the landfill!
With excess food, nobody is winning. That's why we started Peko Produce - we want to do our part in repairing the broken food system.
