Ahold Delhaize Banner Stop & Shop Expands Flashfood Program Across New York; Tarik Stewart and Josh Domingues Discuss
NANUET, NY - Expanded program alert! Flashfood has continued to grow its presence through strategic retail alliances, and now the company is expanding its partnership with Ahold Delhaize banner Stop & Shop to roll out the innovative program across a 60-store footprint in New York.
“Providing value and variety to our customers with a focus on reducing our carbon footprint is at the forefront of what we do,” said Tarik Stewart, Regional Vice President of Operations for Stop & Shop. “We’re proud to now offer the Flashfood marketplace to our New York customers to help offer sustainable shopping options with ways to also save significantly on groceries.”
Stop & Shop’s expansion throughout New York is part of the grocer’s 2023 rollout plans to make Flashfood available at more than 300 Stop & Shop locations across the Northeast, a press release stated. With over 60 of Stop & Shop’s New York stores across Long Island, New York City, Westchester County, and the Hudson Valley now offering Flashfood, sales through the app will further decrease food waste throughout the Northeast.
Since the duo formed their alliance in 2021, over 30,000 shoppers across the Northeast have used Flashfood, resulting in nearly $500,000 in grocery savings and over 233,280 pounds of food being saved from ending up in landfills.
“Our mission has always been to reduce food waste, while helping families eat healthy food at an affordable price,” said Josh Domingues, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Flashfood. “With one in 10 New York residents facing food insecurity, our expansion across over 60 Stop & Shop locations will be an incredible resource to New Yorkers, bringing more fresh options to dinner tables across the region.”
With Flashfood, shoppers are able to save up to 50 percent off items nearing their best-by dates, such as meats, dairy, seafood, fresh produce, baked goods, and more. To learn more about the program, click here.
