At Too Good To Go, we have an ambitious goal: to inspire and empower everyone to fight food waste.

As the world’s largest food waste-fighting app, we connect stores that have unsold, surplus food with consumers who buy and enjoy it. Our community of 26 million users has saved more than 47 million meals from going to waste across 15 countries - but there’s still a lot more we want to achieve.

Globally, a third of all food is wasted, and climate experts agree that combating food waste is one of the most important things we can do to address the climate crisis.
