At Too Good To Go, we have an ambitious goal: To inspire and empower everyone to fight food waste together. We work with thousands of restaurants and food retailers to make their surplus food available to local consumers. The app has a community of 40 million, which has saved more than 78 million meals from more than 70,000 businesses using the platform to sell their surplus food, including Carrefour, Costa, SPAR International, 7-Eleven, Lidl, Netto, and Morrisons.
As well as the app, the company is building a Movement Against Food Waste and leads projects to amend date labelling in Europe, making it clearer to consumers when food is safe to eat, and outlining the differences between ‘best before’ and ‘use by’.
We fight together: Food waste is a big beast to fight. We can do it if we fight together as Waste Warriors with no ego. We believe in a #oneteam
We raise the bar: We’re building something extraordinary and we want to do it right. We always push for more, work smart and smash barriers.
We keep it simple: Our ambitions are bold but our solutions are simple. We break problems into smaller bits and we always call it like we see it.
We build a legacy: We have an incredible opportunity to inspire the world and we’re proud of the change we’re driving.
We care: We always look out for our consumers, our partners – and each other. Caring is also about the way we do business. We do the right thing.
