Across borders, dialects and differences, there’s a universal language: food. It’s one of the reasons we here at Too Good To Go value it so much.

At Too Good To Go, we have an ambitious mission: to inspire and empower everyone to fight food waste together.

More than 1/3 of all food produced in the world is wasted. And that has a huge impact on the health of our planet. 10% of greenhouse gas emissions come from food waste and loss.

Through our marketplace app, we connect businesses that have unsold, surplus food, with consumers who can buy and enjoy it at ⅓ of retail value. We are a certified B Corporation with a mission to empower everyone to take action against food waste. Alongside our marketplace app, we create educational tools, explore new business solutions, and influence legislation to help reduce food waste.

We’re growing fast: Our community of 86 million registered users and 208,000 active partners across 17 countries, have together already saved 292 million meals from going to waste – avoiding almost 730,000 tonnes of CO2e!

Too Good To Go was named in FastCompany’s March 2022 list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies, and was honoured to be included in TIME’s list of the 100 Most Influential Companies of 2022.
