Looking for a reliable source to find ratings of food-providers and food items from particular brands? Want to know which food should be the best for you under the current circumstances?
Greenpoint-based, HowGood awards ratings to the food products in the market and thereby creates an incredibly trustworthy source of information for consumers to find out ‘how good’ a particular food item is. They’ve created a new system for rating sustainability in the food industry delving beyond mainstream considerations such as non-G.M.O. and organic to include overlooked factors such as animal husbandry, growing practices, a company’s behavior and about 70 others. With $2 million in funding, HowGood has been termed as the ‘dynamic calling card’ by CEO Alexander Gillett. You can simply use your phone to read the barcode off from the product in your local supermarket and HowGood will tell you whether you should really purchase the item or not.
