Meijer Partners with Flashfood to Reduce Waste


Flashfood of Canada has entered into an arrangement with Meijer to allow customers to order and purchase foods close to their expiry date.  The program includes meat, produce, seafood, deli and bakery products sold at a 50 percent discount.  Customers access an app, select a Meijer store, purchase and pay for items directly and then pickup items placed on racks or in refrigerators.

Eric Tribe, Chief Marketplace Officer for Flashfood stated, “We are incredibly excited to be rolling out with Meijer and to be expanding all over Michigan and into Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and Wisconsin.”  To date 240 Meijer Supercenters offer Flashfood following a trial in November 2019.


Meijer donated 13.2 million pounds of food in 2020 to local food banks a part of their corporate food rescue program.
