Too Good To Go down under

The world’s largest marketplace for surplus food, Too Good To Go is coming to Australia with a launch that will start in Melbourne.

The Danish-born social impact company is in the process of recruiting a strong local team, with the aim to help households and businesses across the country reduce food waste.

Since its launch in 2016, Too Good To Go has helped to save over 300 million meals from going to waste, the equivalent to avoiding 810,000 tonnes of CO2e, 243 billion litres of unnecessary water use, and 840 million m2 of annual land use.

“We are a mission-driven company and are immensely excited about our upcoming launch in Australia,” says Mette Lykke, CEO of Too Good To Go.

“We dream of a planet with no food waste, and Australia plays a powerful, positive role in that vision. We look forward to working closely with local retailers and the foodservice industry to help them make the most of their invaluable food.”

The Too Good To Go app is a free mobile marketplace where retailers, restaurants, bakeries and cafes can sell their surplus, preventing their good food from going to waste. Users of the app save ‘Too Good To Go Surprise Bags’, getting delicious unsold food at half of the original price or less.

The company also offers Too Good To Go Platform: an AI-powered end-to-end solution for retailers, with modular software that seamlessly tracks and redistributes surplus food.

“We need to work together, and rally around innovative ways to make the most of good food that is currently going to waste,” says Joost Rietveld, Country Director for Too Good To Go Australia.

“Whether it is at the start or at the end of the food supply chain, we have an opportunity to demonstrate to the rest of the world that Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are attainable; especially when you embrace the determination and open-minded, positive spirit that Australians are renowned for,” he says.
