Too Good To Go helps restaurants and food businesses reduce food waste through a smartphone app. For example, instead of restaurants wasting any excess food, consumers can come - 15 minutes before closing time - and pick up the surplus food in take away boxes for as little as 2 Euros.
This way, the food business earns money on what was before lost, while allowing the consumer to enjoy a delicious meal for next to nothing while providing a huge benefit for the environment.
