Promises to bring cooking at home into 21st century after decades of stagnation
Washington, DC: Today marks a milestone for Budgeat, an innovative food technology company with an exciting new mobile application for consumers, as it officially launched. Budgeat is focused on helping individuals eat better, save money, and waste less while cooking and eating at home. The company’s innovative app generates personalized meal plans from a vast library of recipes that consider an individual’s budgetary, dietary, taste, and cooking preferences. Plus, it takes into account the ingredients people have on hand, ensuring that nothing goes to waste in the kitchen. Budgeat even generates easy to use grocery lists to make the shopping experience a breeze. By combining all these features in an intelligent manner Budgeat aims to leverage technology to meaningfully improve the experience of anyone who cooks and eats at home.
Alex Munoz, Budgeat’s Founder and CEO, said of the launch, “We’re beyond thrilled to celebrate the launch of Budgeat and start helping more and more people in their home cooking pursuits. After all, as the saying goes, the kitchen is the heart of the home, but how we cook at home hasn’t changed in decades. I may visit multiple sources to find recipes, use a meal planning app to plan meals, write out my shopping list in a note on my phone or on paper, and there isn’t an easy way of tracking what food I have at home so I can use it up before it goes bad. All this fragmentation and lack of technology contributes to a poor diet, lost time and money, and a huge amount of wasted food. Budgeat changes all of this. We intend to revolutionize the way the world eats at home, and the launch of our first product is a major milestone on that journey.”
With the triple aim of helping its members eat better, save money, and waste less Budgeat is a social enterprise at its core. It’s estimated that poor nutrition cost the U.S. economy $6.1 trillion between 2021 and 2023 alone, beyond the far greater human toll of suffering and despair. Additionally, wasted food is responsible for an estimated 8-10% of global greenhouse gas emissions. To put it simply, says company Co-Founder and COO Adam Fry, “What we eat, including how we produce, distribute, prepare, and consume food, has shaped the world we live in, and it will continue to do so. At Budgeat we see improving the way the world eats at home as a major lever to achieve a brighter future.”
Budgeat is on a mission to revolutionize the way the world eats at home. Founded in 2022 to help people eat better, save money, and waste less, the company leverages technology to improve the experience of cooking and eating at home. For more information visit https://www.budgeat.app/
