The app reducing food waste and turning it into discounted food

  • 12/06/2019

Food waste is a monstrous environmental issue.

About a third of food produced for human consumption is thrown away. 

Eateries and cafes are part of the issue: once it's past its best, they can't sell it.

Enter Foodprint: the new app that lets cafes and restaurants list surplus food at a discount. You can then pick it up on the way home, the eatery still gets a sale, and less gets thrown away.

It's debuted on iPhone and Android this week and eateries are signing up by the hour.

Foodprint Founder Michal Garvey spoke to The AM Show.
