Former Whole Foods Market co-CEO Walter Robb has joined the board and invested in Colorado-based startup FoodMaven, which helps food retailers and other businesses get rid of oversupplied food. FoodMaven purchases imperfect produce and other surplus food items from grocers, producers, growers and distributors and sells them to restaurants, institutional kitchens and commercial food business through an online marketplace, and donates whatever food doesn't sell.
