Too Good To Go

Featured image

We fight food waste by helping food stores sell their surplus food through our free smartphone app. The result is win-win-win; stores make money on unsold items instead of throwing it away; users enjoy great meals at a fraction of the price; and most importantly, the environment wins as a result of the reduction in food waste.

What is the goal of the project?

Each year, one third of the food produced globally is wasted. At Too Good To Go, we want to reduce food waste worldwide. We fight food waste by helping food stores sell their surplus food through our free smartphone app.
We want to create a world where food produced is food consumed. The result is win-win-win: stores make money on unsold items instead of throwing it away; users enjoy great meals at a fraction of the price; and most importantly, the environment wins as a result of the reduction in food waste and thus emission of green house gasses.

What is the result of the project?

The Too Good To Go app saw the light of day in January, 2016. During its first year, Too Good To Go proved to be one of the most promising startups gaining massive media coverage and quickly surpassing more than 3.000 partners, 1 million downloads and 500.000 meals saved. These numbers continue to grow daily, and in 2017 alone the Too Good To Go users saved over 2 million meals. Currently, Too Good To Go operates in 7 European countries with more to come.

What is the next step?

The Too Good To Go App launched the 22nd of January 2018 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. In 2018 we aim to fight foodwaste in other Dutch cities as well. We hope to welcome Utrecht and Rotterdam soon in the app.
