Imperfect Produce is a subscription service that delivers imperfect produce, which is often discarded, to your doorstep. The entrepreneur behind Imperfect Produce, Ben Simon from San Francisco, California, tells everyone on Steve Harvey’s Funderdome that “one in five fruits and vegetables go to waste because they’re too ugly for the grocery store.” With an Imperfect Produce subscription, you can get your fruit and veggies — albeit uglier fruit and veggies — for 30 to 40 percent cheaper than grocery store prices. On Funderdome, Imperfect Produce competes against Lalabu, a shirt that allows parents to hold their babies close.
There are 4 Imperfect Produce subscriptions available: the most popular is Organic (organic fruit and veggies); the best value is Mixed Fruit & Veggie; fruit lovers sign up for All Fruit; and veggie lovers love the All Veggie subscription. There are different size boxes to choose from too. For example, a small Organic box contains about 7 to 9 lbs. of food which costs $15-$17/a week. An extra large Organic box which weighs 23-25 lbs. costs $39-43/a week. Steve Harvey’s Funderdome airs Sundays at 9pm on ABC, right after Celebrity Family Feud.
