The company turned out to be Imperfect Produce, a business that buys up ugly produce from large agribusiness across the globe for resale at a discount through a subscription box program. Before Imperfect Produce arrived, the BeetBox profits allowed us to supply produce to under-resourced neighborhoods, support free community meals programs and supply free fruit to a variety of youth programs. This produce used to be readily available to food banks but now that ugly and imperfect produce can turn a profit, they are less available to those in need.
