Misfits Market delivers organic produce at up to 40% below traditional grocery store prices, working directly with small and mid-sized organic farms to bring customers fresh fruits and vegetables from local sources. Misfits Market was established after founder Abhi Ramesh visited a farm where some produce was being thrown away because it wasn’t attractive enough for markets or grocery stores to stock.

Oddbox

Oddbox, the UK’s pioneer fruit and veg box designed to reduce food waste, procures surplus fruits and vegetables directly from farmers before providing them to subscribers as home deliveries in home boxes. By doing this, Oddbox helps customers reduce their carbon footprint while contributing towards creating a more sustainable world.

Emilie Vanpoperinghe and Deepak Ravindran first came up with the concept for their business while on holiday in Portugal, when they noticed how different local produce looked from what could be found back home in supermarkets. This inspired them to establish a business with the aim of alleviating this problem.

While their business initially began in a garage, the founders have since relocated it to a warehouse in South-West London that houses multiple other businesses such as coffee roasters and jewellery makers. Their team works towards building community within this space by hosting events and workshops regularly.

Oddbox was first established in 2016 and since then has saved more than 3 Million Tonnes from going to waste, the equivalent to feeding over 42,000 people annually. Furthermore, any surplus food produced is donated directly to food poverty charities.

By emphasizing quality and transparency, the company has built up an incredible loyal following of over 100,000 members. Their customer service team comprises individuals from the local community who can answer questions or recommend products that best suit customers.

Oddbox goes beyond simply offering fresh fruits and vegetables by also providing educational content on how to best utilize these ingredients, ensuring customers make the most of their purchases. They have even formed partnerships with brands like The Body Shop and LUSH in order to offer special discounts for these products.

Oddbox has seen substantial growth during the pandemic lockdown period, yet has found this to be challenging for their business. Elisabeth Yates, head of growth at Oddbox stated that most new customers were coming from within London’s boundaries which means Oddbox must work harder at building brand recognition and increasing brand salience.

Public Goods

Public goods are products and services that benefit a broad group of people within a society, unlike private goods which tend to benefit fewer. Public goods stand apart from their private counterparts by possessing two distinctive traits: non-rivalry and non-excludability. When one individual consumes a public good, their consumption does not subtract from anyone else’s enjoyment; additionally, consumption does not reduce availability for future consumers like wild game used as food sources (an example being wild game eaten for food being considered public good).

Non-excludability is more difficult to attain as it requires individuals being able to exclude others from enjoying a product or service, making this an extremely difficult goal to attain when dealing with non-tangible goods and services. Paywalls and memberships may help provide some excludability; examples of public goods would include education, national security, law enforcement services, free roads and television and radio broadcasts.

Public goods also present the risk of disproportionately benefiting relatively well-off individuals, thereby creating inequalities and increasing social problems. For example, the cost of higher education tends to be greater for poorer families compared to richer individuals; such inequity can be addressed by making sure production of public goods evenly spread among the population.

As well as these considerations, producing public goods can often be unprofitable; since they are usually not sold and bought through traditional marketplace mechanisms. Some public goods may even cause harm to the economy by creating negative externalities for other individuals or businesses.

An economist would call these issues market failure. Market failure refers to when free markets fail to deliver results that are efficient for the overall economy; its causes include externalities and natural monopolies. Due to these issues, most countries rely on public goods being provided through government instead of through private enterprise.
