At Too Good To Go we have an ambitious goal: to inspire and empower everyone to take action against food waste. More than 1/3 of all food produced in the world is wasted, and that has a huge impact on the environment: 10% of greenhouse gas emissions come from food waste and loss.

We operate the world’s largest B2C marketplace for surplus food. Through The Too Good To Go app we connect businesses that have unsold, surplus food with consumers who can buy and enjoy it at a reduced price. We are a certified B Corporation with a mission to inspire and empower everyone to fight food waste together. Alongside our marketplace, we create educational tools, deliver business solutions and influence legislation to help reduce food waste.

We’re growing fast: Our community of 90 million registered users across 17 countries has already saved more than 300 million meals from going to waste - together avoiding more than 800,000 tonnes of CO2e. In 2023, Fortune included us in their list of companies who ‘Change the World’, and Apple recognised Too Good To Go as one of the best apps in the world at the prestigious annual App Store Awards, for our app’s exceptional user experience and profound impact on society.
