It has been quite the year, and Australia is really coming to embrace the fuglies and fight back against food waste. Did you know that we’ve delivered more than 500,000kgs of fruit and vegetables for the first time this year? It’s an incredible number, when you think about all that delicious food that ended up on people’s plates rather than waste piles.
We’ve also started delivering to new cities – eight more locations around Australia, allowing more people to fight waste while saving on the cost of living.
Now with extras, too!
If you’ve visited the Good & Fugly website recently, you may have noticed that we’ve also launched Fugly Extras – these pantry stuffers have been carefully selected because they share our philosophy towards good causes, and feeling better about food. And they taste great in recipes with the Good & Fugly fruit and veg boxes, too!
Fugly extras have launched with all these treats. Be sure to check back for more!
- Free Range Eggs
- Happy Happy Soy Boy
- Happy Happy Oat Milk
- Kingswood Coffee Signature Milk Blend (Whole Bean)
- Honey – Sunny Times
- Mayver’s Smooth Peanut Butter
We’ve also made it easier than ever to give the gift of fugly! Good & Fugly gift vouchers are simple purchases from the Website, and can be instantly delivered via email. It’s the perfect way to share just how delicious and filling fuglies can be.
We care about Aussie farmers; we hope you do too
You may have noticed The Farm To Supermarket Food Waste Report 2023 earlier this year. That was another first for Good & Fugly, and we did that because we felt compelled to learn what is going on with our farmers, their challenges and how we as a society can help. It’s so important that Australian farmers can run profitably and feel like their contributions to society are valued, and we hope that this report will, over time, help to drive positive change.
We’re taking a little break over Christmas, but we’ll be back!
Finally, just a quick note from us that the Good & Fugly team will be taking a short break from December 23 to January 1, and be back on board and delivering anew from January 2.
We wish everyone happy and safe holidays as we round out the year and look forward to 2024. Thank you for being with us on this journey to fight back against food waste and bring more fruit and vegetables to more people, and we’ll see you in the New Year.
