Too Good To Go is the world's number 1 app for fighting food waste. Why is that important? Because 1/3 of the food produced in the world is wasted, and that has a huge impact on the health of our planet: 8% of greenhouse gas emissions come from food waste!

Our mission is to inspire and empower everyone to take action against food waste. The app already has more than 13,6 million users across Europe, and we’re growing fast with 13 countries currently active and more coming.

But here’s what really matters: we’re starting to make a real impact, so far through the app we’ve saved more than 20 million meals from the bin - that’s more than 50 thousand tons of CO2 saved!
