It is estimated that 3,300 tons of food waste is dumped into the landfills every day and approximately one third of them comes from the food industry. Among the food wasted, a good quantity is still quality food that can benefit plenty of people in need.

We rescue an average of 4,000 kg of surplus food daily from going to the landfills.

  • Fresh food
