Preventing food waste before recycling food waste

According to the European Environment Agency (EEA), around 86 million tonnes (173 kg per person) of food are wasted every year in the EU. This means that 20% of all food produced in the EU is discarded. In Bulgaria over 90 kg food per person are discarded in one year.

Preventing food waste can significantly reduce the environmental impact that production, processing and transportation of food have. It has much greater environmental benefits than recycling food.

In addition to the social and environmental positive impacts on society as a whole, studies show a positive financial return on investment for both companies and consumers involved in food waste prevention actions.

Save Food Mission

As a company responsible company, it is of great importance for Edenred Bulgaria to be involved in the promotion and taking actions on the topic of preventing food waste.

Guided by this goal, it was important for us to find a solution both for our partner sites that can prevent the disposal of the food they sell and for end users to be involved in this process, saving the "imperfect" production. from grocery stores or take at a good price unsold food for the day from restaurants. Thus, another member appeared in the partner family of Edenred Bulgaria - Foodobox.

The mission of Foodobox is to use as much food as possible and not to fall into the trash. To fulfill this goal, Foodobox is creating an innovative mobile application. Through it, consumers can save delicious food that has not been sold or has expired.

The mobile application Foodobox connects restaurants from the horeca sector with end users. Through it, restaurants and grocery stores offer products that are not sold during the day, with a discount of at least 40%. Users of the application keep their surprise box and then pick it up on site in a selected time range. With each box saved by consumers, greenhouse gas emissions are reduced by about 2.5 kg.

Thus, on the one hand, Foodobox positions its partner sites as innovative and responsible "green" businesses, and on the other hand solves a key problem of businesses - financial losses caused by unsold good food. The benefit to consumers is the favorable price they take advantage of.

The Food Rescue Platform provides an opportunity for Bulgarian businesses to join the circular economy and the sustainable practices set out in European legislation for the next few years. The platform now offers products of high quality organic brands such as Harmonica, Venets, Delishu and even pet food from pet stores.

Jane Dimitrova, co-founder of Foodobox:

"Part of our mission is to change the public attitudes and the way of thinking of Bulgarians. Until we begin to perceive food waste as a serious problem, there is no way we can achieve anything to solve it. One of the biggest paradoxes is that about 670,000 tons of food are dumped in Bulgaria annually, which is enough to feed 1.5 million Bulgarians living below the poverty line. More than half of this food is thrown away in households, so through our personal example and good business practices, each of us can consciously contribute to reducing resource waste".
