A global issue
Food waste is a huge global problem that has substantial environmental, social and economic consequences. It’s estimated that up to a third of all food that is produced for human consumption is lost or wasted. That’s unacceptable!
We understand the scale of the issue related to food waste and we acknowledge our responsibility to find solutions to reverse this trend. Therefore, we work towards preventing and minimizing food waste in our operations. The best way is to start from the beginning and avoiding food waste in the first place. We do that by precise inventory and preparation planning as well as working to ensure freshness and quality of the products.
Our food rescue partners
Since 2018 we have partnered up with leading food rescue application services. In Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Germany we work with Too Good To Go. In Finland we collaborate with ResQClub. Through these apps we are able to sell good surplus food, that would otherwise have been thrown away. That feels amazing.
