New app helps food suppliers to make use of their food waste

In a week that 40 environmental organisations called for food waste across Europe to be halved within the next 15 years, it seems some progress is already being made.

Supermarket giant ASDA, has launched a new mobile app which provides a platform for suppliers to market their food waste to other people who may find a use for it. The app, which works as an online marketplace, allows for suppliers such as restaurants to pass on leftover ingredients, uneaten waste or vegetable trimmings to others who will be able to find a use for it, rather than it ending up in landfill.

The app, which was launched yesterday at ASDA’s yearly Sustain and Save Exchange conference, aims to battle food wastage in the UK and highlighted the supply chain as one of the biggest offenders, with as much as 45% of food waste coming from it. ASDA hopes that the app will encourage industry leaders to find new uses for their surplus waste by providing a central platform for them to share and trade their waste.
