Supplier Account Manager 14 views

Full Harvest is a high-growth, VC-backed AgTech startup solving food waste (Fast Company’s #1 World
Changing Idea in Food in 2020). We are the first B2B marketplace connecting farms with food & beverage
businesses to sell imperfect and surplus produce, while digitizing one of the largest and most important
industries that is still stuck in the dark ages.

More than ¼ of all edible produce globally goes to waste annually on-farms. We are solving this problem
with our marketplace to help farmers easily sell their excess and have more transparency into the market.
Our vision is three-fold: lower the cost of healthy food production, bring additional revenue streams to
farmers, while significantly reducing wasted food and resources. A win-win-win for farmers, food
companies and the planet.
