Shop Smart For Groceries With This App

There is now an app to help you navigate through the confusing grocery store lingo!

Sustainable? Specialty food? Fair trade? Humanely raised? Bumping into these words at the grocery store can be confusing; sometimes they mean different things to people, manufacturers and the government! Good thing is, now there’s an app for that! HowGood is an app made to help cut through the lingo in an efficient way offering quick, well-researched ratings for over 170,000 food products. The people at HowGood research partner up with a variety of companies and farms to evaluate how the decisions these companies make affect the world in general and the consumer in particular. Not only do they go over the ins and outs of sourcing and production, they also look at things like how the parent company treats its workers, how they engage with their communities and how harmful their practices are to the environment.

HowGood is that?!
