The app Too Good To Go has managed to make a million krones while helping cafes and restaurants sell food that would otherwise be thrown away at the end of the day.
The mobile app connects food producers, shops and restaurants with users who want to save food from ending up in the trash bin. The customer gets a reasonable meal, Too Good To Go takes one percent of the sales price and the outlet gets the rest – and it gets less food waste.
A good idea of a good deed has also become a good business in just three years, and last year the company ended with a profit, before tax of NOK 1.3 million in Norway, writes Dagens Næringsliv. Turnover was 6.6 million.
With 1,200 outlets and 750,000 registered users in Norway, the app contributes to around 4,500 servings of food that “are saved” every day.
“It shows that there is a willingness to make an effort for the environment when facilitated. We are proud that our app makes it easier to make environmentally friendly choices,” says general manager Ann-Kristin Raknes Pfründer in Too Good To Go Norway.
