Nisa’s independent retailers have reached a new milestone of saving 150,000 meals since partnering with Too Good To Go in 2019.
Multiple Nisa stores are now actively fighting food waste through the surplus food app and ‘Magic Bag’ programme.
The exact contents of each £3.50 ‘Magic Bag’ remain unknown until they are collected, but each one is guaranteed to contain at least £10 worth of groceries.
With over 300 stores signed up to the app, the latest figure equates to saving 375 tonnes of Co2e – as around 1,200-1,300 meals are saved at the convenience retailer each week.
The app presents retailers with a useful tool to drastically reduce the amount of food waste in stores, whilst offering a helping hand to the community by sharing price cuts on a range of products – which is a crucial feature for many amid the ongoing cost-of-living crisis.

In August last year, Nisa revealed it had saved 100,000 meals from going to waste with Too Good To Go.
“Every Nisa store that has so far partnered with Too Good To Go have given positive feedback about how simple the app is to use and the impact on the local community,” regional retail manager at Nisa, Ian Bacon, said.
“We are all very aware of the cost-of-living crisis and the Too Good To Go app is one way that Nisa retailers can offer support to their shoppers really effectively.”
Country Director UK/IE at Too Good To Go, Sophie Trueman commented: “Together, we have successfully saved 150,000 meals to date, a significant achievement in our efforts to reduce food waste.
“This milestone reflects our shared commitment to sustainability and the positive influence businesses can have when working together. With Nisa’s continued support, we look forward to reaching new milestones and making an even greater impact.”
