App Aims to Creatively Reduce Food Waste
An app aimed at mitigating a massive food waste problem has moved to the Seattle area. The Too Good To Go app allows people to buy food that would otherwise have been thrown out by restaurants, delicatessens, supermarkets, hotels and bakeries at one-third of the price. Since the platform’s establishment nearly 37 million meals have been saved and over 90,000 businesses have joined the platform worldwide. What the app does is create a marketplace for surplus food. Customers can affordably buy from their favorite food businesses, or they can use the app to try out a new business. The food comes at a discounted price but customers may not know what they are about to receive in their “surprise bags,” because the logistics of creating a menu is too difficult, especially when businesses don’t know what kind of food they may have to offer from one day to the next. Businesses receive the majority of the proceeds, while the Too Good To Go company receive $1.79 transactional fee per purchase.
