Flashfood has received recognition as #1 in the Clean Technology category as part of the 2022 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 awards program. The program recognizes Canada's 50 fastest-growing technology companies based on the highest revenue-growth percentage over the past four years. Flashfood ranked first with a four-year revenue growth rate of 11,869 per cent.

Deloitte's Technology Fast 50 program winners consist of public and private companies in the technology sector that are transforming the industry. The program runs alongside the broader Deloitte North American Technology Fast 500, with winners automatically eligible for this elite ranking.

Established in 2021, the Clean Technology award aims to recognize Canada's top clean innovators providing processes, goods, or services that reduce environmental impacts. Eligibility in the Clean Technology category requires applicants to meet the same criteria as Technology Fast 50 nominees except they must have a minimum revenue of $50,000 in 2018 and $5 million in 2021. The winning companies are ranked by their revenue-growth percentage over that period. The majority of the companies' revenues must come from products or services that have a positive environmental impact in the following areas: carbon emissions reduction potential, resource circulation (reduce, reuse, and recycle), or environmental preservation and safety.

"It's really humbling to receive this recognition and to be in the position we are as a company. We have the best teammates who want to focus their careers doing impactful environmental work, a collaborative, growth-oriented culture, and strong retail partnerships that have led to incredible business results," says Josh Domingues, founder & CEO of Flashfood. "To say that Flashfood is the fastest growing clean tech company in Canada is something we're all very proud of, but we have a lot more work to do in front of us."

Since 2016, Flashfood has connected consumers to heavily discounted food nearing its best-before date. Shoppers download the Flashfood app to find a nearby grocery location, choose discounted food items and complete their purchase. They then pick up their order at the designated Flashfood Zone at their local grocery store. The digital marketplace diverted more than 50 million pounds of food from reaching the landfill through partnerships with some of North America's largest grocers.
