The UK alone wastes 1.9 million tons of food each year meaning we all need to make changes to the way we shop and consume food. Tech is helping the way we approach sustainable eating, and we have compiled a list of the best app’s to help you reduce your waste!

1: OLIO

One of the best food waste apps, Olio helps to connect neighbours and local retailers so surplus food can be shared and not disposed of. This also works as a trading platform with other items on offer such as garden tools and kitchen appliances.

2: KARMA

From the Michelin-starred Aquavit to Hummus Bros, Magpie, and Detox Kitchen, this Swedish start up helps the consumer discover unsold food from nearby restaurants, bars and caf├ęs in London.

3: TOO GOOD TO GO

Active in 9 European countries, this food waste app helps to combat the issue by providing a platform for stores to sell their surplus produce at a reduced price, think food delivery with a green discount!
