Save Mart Partners with Flashfood to Offer Discounted Food and Divert Waste

The Save Mart Companies, a 194-store supermarket chain operating in California and western Nevada, has partnered with Flashfood to offer high-quality groceries at up to 50% off and, not incidentally, divert food waste from landfills. The Flashfood app is now available at 44 Lucky stores in the San Francisco Bay Area and will expand to other Save Mart banners’ locations to fulfill customer demand.

More than 11 million tons of food went to waste in California alone in 2022, according to Flashfood. SNAP EBT payment capabilities are built in to the Flashfood platform, benefiting the 4.6 million SNAP customers in California, and Flashfood is committed to adding SNAP EBT as a payment option for all its retail partners by the end of the year, in partnership with payments company Forage.

“No one wants to live in a world where food goes to waste, while at the same time families are forced to live with less,” said Nicholas Bertram, CEO of Flashfood in a statement. “The Bay Area has long been a place where technology is used to solve humanity’s problems, which is why Flashfood desires to be part of this community. We’re proud to partner with The Save Mart Companies, a retailer that has served shoppers in California for more than 70 years and continues to support the communities they serve.”

“This partnership underscores our commitment to innovation and leadership in the industry,” said Tamara Pattison, SVP and CDO at The Save Mart Companies in a statement. “Together, we’re tackling food waste so that the bounty of California’s farms ends up on the dinner table, not in a landfill.”
