Israeli-Dutch startup Wasteless wants to take a bite out of food waste. Its AI-powered dynamic pricing engine automatically reduces the cost of perishable food items as they spend more time on store shelves: The closer a product is to its “best before” date, the cheaper it will be to buy. The tool could be a gamechanger for grocery stores, where the company estimates roughly 87 percent of food waste is due to products languishing past their expiration date.
