About GreenBites:

I see a lot of wasted foodπŸ₯˜, wasted moneyπŸ’΅ , wasted timeβŒ› and potential health risks ⚠️ - all in our kitchens. There are more than 2 million apps in the App Store and Google Play today. But... nothing comes anywhere close to solving all of these problems when it comes to our food.

And so, about 6 months ago, I quit my job to do something about it. In that time, I built this mobile app - GreenBites. GreenBites is an AI app for smart food.

Powered by artificial intelligence (AI), GreenBites can help you save timeβŒ› and moneyπŸ’΅ while keeping an eye for your health❀️ and our planet's sustainability♻️ when it comes to your food. How does it all work? Just take a quick pictureπŸ“Έ of your grocery receipt, scan barcodes OR simply add items of your choice. Just from the receipt picture alone, the app ...

- Identifies what's new in your kitchen,

- Gets you the latest US food safety recalls ⚠️ for those items so you and the loved onesπŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦ at home aren't affected,

- Shows you official food storage guidelines and tipsπŸ’‘to maximize the quality and freshness of typically "unlabelled" groceries such as fruits🍊, veggiesπŸ₯¬ and meatsπŸ– so you can get the most out of those perishables,

- Brings you Calorie counter with access to 275,000 food products including 1000s of brands in the US to help you with health and fitness goals,

- Reduces food waste at home saving you $100s of dollarsπŸ’΅ in grocery bills per year,

- Manages your kitchen with reminders⏰ for grocery items of your choice,

- Allows you to quickly create smart shopping listsπŸ“‹ as you run out of the grocery items,

- Learns from your preferences to help you save timeβŒ› planning your kitchen.

In short, GreenBites keeps an eye πŸ‘οΈ out for your smart food, kitchen and diet. It solves the age-old problem of tracking your kitchen items and helps you make smart purchasing decisions.

GreenBites is a social-mission company at its core. The app is being offered for free today to have as much impact as possible. So what's the catch? None. We respect user's privacy and data security. We do not sell your data to third-parties ever.

The app currently targets users with iOS devices. An Android version will follow very soon.

GreenBites has been in beta for last 2 months, and it has made great progress in that time thanks to the incredible supportπŸ’Œ from our early US and international users πŸ‘₯. So, we are excited to announce GreenBites to you today!
