Danish-based company Too Good To Go has launched in Melbourne, aiming to help Australian households and businesses reduce food waste.

Data from the National Food Waste Baseline records that 7.6 million tonnes of food waste are produced annually in Australia. Furthermore, food waste costs the nation’s economy $36.6 billion annually and accounts for 3 per cent of the country’s carbon emissions.

To help the Australian federal government halve its annual food waste by 2030, Too Good To Go is a free mobile app that allows retailers, restaurants, bakeries, and cafes to sell their excess food and keep good food from going to waste. 

Mette Lykke, CEO of Too Good To Go, a BCorp-certified company, is excited about its upcoming launch in Australia.

“We dream of a planet with no food waste, and Australia plays a powerful, positive role in that vision,” added Lykke.

“They have clear and ambitious goals. That’s why we are in the process of building a strong, talented local team, headquartered in Melbourne. We look forward to working closely with local retailers and the foodservice industry to help them make the most of their invaluable food.”

With 90 million registered users and 155,000 active business partners, the Too Good To Go app runs the largest excess food marketplace globally. It has helped to stop the waste of almost 300 million meals since 2016.
