A restaurant has teamed up with an app to stop unsold food from going to waste by selling it on to consumers.
The deal will see the OXO Tower Restaurant, Bar and Brasserie use Too Good To Go app to reduce food waste.
Too Good To Go will match businesses that have unsold food with consumers looking for a tasty bargain in the form of a Magic Bag of surplus food .
Consumers download the app and search for nearby restaurants and retailers with leftover food. They then purchase the food through the app, and collect it from the store.
Nick Jarman, general Manager at OXO Tower Restaurant, Bar and Brasserie said: “We pride ourselves on providing the finest local produce to prepare and serve hot and cold food in our restaurant, bar and brasserie.
“Day to day it can be hard to predict exactly how much produce is needed for service and of course, we want to make sure anything that doesn’t get served is enjoyed, not wasted, so partnering with Too Good To Go is the perfect way to achieve this.”
Hayley Conick Too Good To Go, said: “Our aim is to eliminate food waste globally, and it’s great to have iconic partners such as OXO Tower working with us on the cause.
Reducing food waste not only makes good business sense, but it’s a big win for the planet, helping to curb harmful CO2 emissions.”
