Josh Domingues, founder & CEO of Flashfood, a digital marketplace that connects consumers to heavily discounted food nearing its best-before date, was named one of Canada's Most Influential Changemakers by The Globe and Mail's Report on Business magazine. Domingues, who founded Flashfood in 2016, was recognized for his entrepreneurial spirit and his commitment to making an environmental and social impact that lasts.
Changemakers is an editorial award program produced by Report on Business magazine at The Globe and Mail. This program celebrates emerging business leaders who are making a difference in their industry with their ideas, accomplishments, and impact.
Nominations were solicited for the Changemakers award in fall 2022.
"As the world grapples with new challenges from greening the economy to adjusting to the new geopolitical reality, the Canadian business community needs new ideas and bold leaders," says Dawn Calleja, editor of Report on Business magazine. "The Changemakers program aims to highlight 50 people who are taking on pressing issues and turning ideas into impact."
"It's humbling to be named as a 2023 Changemaker," says Domingues. "The recognition elevates Flashfood's ability to meaningfully deliver impact for our shoppers, retailers, and the environment. I'm excited for all we have planned as we work to further our mission of reducing the environmental impact of food waste while feeding families more affordably."
To date, Flashfood has reportedly saved shoppers over $170 million on their grocery bills and diverted more than 65 million pounds of food from reaching the landfill through partnerships with some of North America's largest grocers.
