Supplier cuts down on food waste with innovative app
Company Director Andrew McLay explains more:
“We enrolled on the Too Good to Go app to help reduce food waste whilst simultaneously offering a wide range of food items at a low cost to people around our local area in Glasgow. Every day we make up large food parcels in reusable crates that host a wide range of items that would otherwise be disposed of.
“By enrolling on the Too Good to Go app we have reduced our food waste collections by a third – this not only reduces the land miles involved in the waste collection stage, but it also prevents C02e from going to waste. Since joining Too Good to Go, we have saved over 3 tonnes of C02e, and prevented over 10,000kg of food becoming waste.”
Laura added: “It’s so encouraging to hear about the efforts our suppliers are making as we all strive to reduce our environmental impact.
“Scottish councils spend around £65 million a year on food contracts ranging from fresh meats to milk, to fresh fruit and vegetables and just about everything else you can imagine that would be cooked up and served in the schools, nurseries, care homes and public buildings in every one of Scotland’s 32 local authorities.
“The Too Good to Go App is just one example of our suppliers working to our shared goal of a Net Zero Scotland by 2045.”
This feature is part of Scotland Excel’s ‘Supporting the journey to Net Zero’ campaign that aims to support the Scottish Government’s ambitious target for Scotland to become Net Zero by 2045.
