Oddbox is the UK’s first fruit and vegetable box that fights food waste. They rescue odd and surplus fruits and vegetables straight from farms, delivering them to their customers' doorstep. Alongside their 70,000-strong community, Oddbox helps make a difference to the planet each week - fighting food waste at the farm-level, preventing CO2 emissions and saving water along the way. They first launched in 2016, with two founders, Emilie & Deepak, packing produce in a small area in South-West London. Since then, Oddbox has grown across the UK with big plans to scale across the continent.
