Imagine if there was something we could all change today that would reduce global warming by 10%. That’s how much food waste contributes to the climate crisis, and yet we continue to waste 40% of all food in the US.
At Too Good To Go, we dream of a planet with no food waste. Our app connects consumers to surplus food that would otherwise be thrown away from local restaurants and grocery stores, such as pastries, fresh produce, sushi and more. Each meal rescued is equivalent to the carbon footprint from charging one smartphone fully 422 times.
Already available in 17 international markets including Paris, London, Copenhagen, Madrid, Toronto and Amsterdam, Too Good To Go has quickly become the go-to for eco-conscious consumers and businesses around the world, resulting in more than 44 million app downloads and over 91 million meals saved to date.
We recently launched our operations in the US and our results have exceeded our expectations! In less than a year, we have 5,000 active stores on the platform, saved over 800,000 meals and built a team of 150+ Waste Warriors. We're increasing our speed to launch more cities even faster, aiming to be 250 Waste Warriors and with +10,000 partners by the end of 2021.
We're looking for a passionate and driven Managing Director to continue building the team in the US and support our ambitious growth. We’ve set up strong foundations in 6 regional offices with a team of 150+ dedicated Waste Warriors and are well on our way to scaling our team and impact rapidly and exponentially.
