Too Good To Go Saves 10 Million Meals In Germany

Food waste prevention app Too Good To Go has reached the milestone of saving ten million meals in Germany, with Edeka Treugut on Heidelberger Strasse in Berlin the location where the target was reached, according to a report in Rundschau.de.

Too Good To Go has already expanded into different countries, such as Denmark, France, Norway, Great Britain, Switzerland, Sweden, Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Austria, Ireland, the USA, and Canada.

In Germany, the app currently has more than 9,500 partner shops in over 900 cities and a community of more than 6 million people.

To date, more than 298.5 million meals have been saved internationally and more than 246,250 tonnes of CO2 equivalent have been saved in the process.

The report quoted Torsten Bertram, store manager at Edeka Treugut, saying, "We are very pleased that the 10 millionth meal was saved at Edeka Treugut. We have now been working with the app for more than a year and a half and we are still enthusiastic."

"Saving food with Too Good To Go is totally uncomplicated and the response from customers has been great. Above all, you go home in the evening with a clear conscience because no valuable food has been wasted," he added.

Recently, SPAR Austria extended its partnership with food waste prevention app Too Good To Go to include all 700 SPAR and EUROSPAR stores in the country and seven INTERSPAR Hypermarkets in Vienna and surrounding areas.
