What is the problem you found?
How might we reduce the excessive buying of food in homes?
Customer / Problem
The average family wastes $1000 worth of food each year. Imagine what this could have been used for! Most families buy too much food and are unsure of what an environmentally safe way would be to deal with this. In the end, most of the food gets chucked out. A big part of the problem is that families don't manage their stash or stock of food. Most people just walk into a shop and buy things without having previously checked what and how much they actually need.
What Is Your Solution?
Our solution to this growing problem is the SLS (Smart Lifestyle). It is a smart fridge/cupboard that detects when you are low on a specific food, and it tells you how much you should be eating and how much of each food item you should be buying each week.
The SLS can also order your groceries right to your door if you are too busy to go shopping. If you have excess food in your fridge and cupboard, the SLS will suggest delicious recipes that you can make so you use up all of your excess foods.
Our funding support would most likely be a company that is willing to take off.
The development support would be somebody who is willing to make this idea become a reality, like Kogan or somebody like that.
