Stop food waste – But how?

Too Good To Go, Rettergut or Motatos are just some of the start-up German companies that have started the fight to reduce food waste.

According to figures from the German Ministry of Agriculture, every year around 12 million tons of food end up in the garbage. According to a recent survey by Danone in collaboration with Too Good To Go, 85% of German respondents consider food waste a “serious” or “very serious” problem. Many start-ups already have ideas to tackle it.

Denmark-based Too Good To Go, for example, has created a smartphone app where anyone can receive “surprise bags” of leftover food from restaurants, bakeries or grocery stores. And at very low prices. The Danish start-up has started partnerships with major supermarket chains Netto, Edeka and Aldi Nord.

They are all trying to provide solutions

On the other hand, the Berlin-based Dörrwerk focuses on reselling fruit and vegetables that are not perfectly shaped. Rettergut also focuses on organic products and even offers organic soups, while the newly founded Motatos resells leftover food to other companies via an online shop.
