FoodCache helps you use more of the food that you buy.
Every year, tons of edible food finds it’s way into landfills, mostly because people didn’t use it in time. We want to change that.

We need early adopters like you to use FoodCache and change the way we manage our food. Get it now!

How it works
  1. Use FoodCache to scan your grocery receipts or manually add food items to create an inventory
  2. Follow FoodCache prompts for what to eat first
  3. Update your food inventory as you eat it
  4. Track food you wasted to improve purchasing habits
  5. Waste less food, save more money

The more you use FoodCache the more the app learns about your purchasing and consumption habits. FoodCache then helps you buy the right amount so that you waste less food.

Frequently Asked Questions

We have integrated data from Food Keeper suggested by USDA. There are gaps identified in data which we updated. We will improve dates as move forward. The most important point is that these dates are recommended dates only and consumer should always use their intuition to identify if food is still edible and safe to eat.

Again this doesn't mean that food is unfit to be consumed. It simply means some of the nutrients might have been lost in produce?

We have plans to support additional ways to add food items to your inventory. Receipt parsing is one convenient way to do so, but accuracy depends on how well user takes a photo of receipt and several other factors like any other OCR application out there.

We only support scanning fresh produce at this time (Vegetables & fruits), stores that have weight information and complete name of the fresh produce printed on the receipts work well. We won't be able to detect produce if it has short names.

  • Unfold, remove wrinkles from grocery receipts as much as possible.
  • Images should be taken with phone parallel to receipt andblur free.
  • Make sure all four edges are detected, to ensure good scan of food items.

  • FoodCache supports all grocery receipts from various stores. Weight and item detection works well with Wholefoods. We have seen better results with Trader Joe's, Safeway, Kroger, to name a few. If there is a grocery store that you shop often and would like us to support we can definitely support that. Please email us
