The Halles Forum in Paris fights against food waste with “Too Good To Go”

Too Good To Go is an app created in 2015 which prevents unsold products from being binned. Thanks to geo-tracking, consumers can find shopkeepers in their area, order their “surprise basket” and collect it straight at the shop at the indicated times. The app works in restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores and supermarkets. Not only it is great for the planet, but consumers also benefit from discount products and restaurants can sell their unsold products at a lower price while they would normally be binned. The Halles Forum has announced its willingness to fight against food waste and to become a sustainable player in Paris. It is proposing to its stores to offer unsold products to the app’s users by the end of the day. Tens of stores are already committed to fight against food waste, amongst which La Brioche Dorée, Monoprix, Pomme de Pain, Starbucks Coffee… Since the beginning of the adventure at the Halles Forum, over 1300 meals have been spared from being disposed of.
