“Grocery stores want food that looks beautiful and unblemished on the outside, which means that they won’t buy things that don’t live up to these strict standards. This means that fruits and vegetables with odd shapes or almonds with scarring are considered “ugly” and unmarketable, despite tasting just as good as their supermarket counterparts.”

Because of all this wide-scale rejection going on at supermarkets and vegetable markets worldwide, where ugly produce is filtered out either by humans or algorithms, the issue has ballooned into the biggest food wastage crisis that humanity has ever seen. All while millions of people go to sleep hungry and malnourished every single day.
