Spar saves one million meals in partnership with Too Good to Go

Spar and Too Good to Go have officially saved one million meals from going to waste over the course of their partnership.  

The symbol group grocer hit the milestone nine months after entering into the joint venture, with 1850 locations working across 13 European markets.  

The collaboration has reportedly cut down on food waste across stores in fresh foods and short shelf-life items by providing customers with an “innovative digital solution” to shop more sustainably.  

According to the convenience store franchise, customers can access information about discounted food packages for sale at nearby stores using the Too Good to Go app, which has consequently cut down on the amount of good quality food going unconsumed.

The move comes as part of the symbol group’s commitment to support the European Union’s goal of halving food waste by 2030, in line with the Green Deal.  

“We are delighted to have met the important milestone of one million meals saved with Too Good to Go, a partnership that is going from strength to strength,” Spar international chief executive Tobias Wasmuht said.  

“This milestone within the first year of our international partnership highlights how effective we are when working together and Spar’s commitment to reducing food waste. 

“It also highlights the demand from our customers who are taking steps to shop sustainably. 

“We thank our customers for their continued co-operation and support.”
