Instacart Launches Instacart Health, a Sweeping New Initiative to Deliver the Ingredients for Healthier Living


The top grocery technology business in North America, Instacart, today unveiled Instacart Health, an expansive new programme that will provide the ingredients for healthier living. Instacart Health is designed to help boost nutrition security, make healthy choices easier for customers, and broaden the role that food can play in improving health outcomes through new products, strategic collaborations, cutting-edge research, and policy advocacy commitments. Instacart Health, which was announced in conjunction with today’s historic White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health, in which Instacart CEO Fidji Simo participated, highlights the crucial connection between food and health, the significant part that private sector businesses can play in this connection, and the necessity of public-private sector collaboration.

Today, more than one in ten Americans lack access to dependable, nutrient-rich food, and more than 100 million Americans suffer from diseases linked to diet. These developments served as the catalyst for Instacart Health, a division of the company that offers a variety of new services, alliances, and policy commitments centred around three main themes: nutrition security, easy access to healthy living, and food as medicine.

“Instacart has become a staple in millions of households, which puts us at the heart of the relationship that people have with food, and therefore, their health. We have a responsibility to use the power of our platform, products and partnerships to expand access to nutritious food and improve health outcomes,”

“Our nation’s hunger and health problems are complex and require cross-sector collaboration. At Instacart, we’re building the technologies that can help many organizations – from healthcare providers, insurers, nonprofits, employers, and health experts – give more people access to fresh, nutritious foods with dignity, speed, and convenience. We know we can’t solve these issues alone and we’re honored to be among those participating at the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health.”

Innovative research collaborations and a new policy agenda are also part of Instacart Health, which advocates for initiatives that encourage universal access to nutrition and improved health outcomes.
