An Epping Forest based food delivery company is working to tackle food waste.

To mark #StopFoodWastageDay today (April 28), GoGetters has partnered with global food wastage company ‘Too Good to Go’ to help combat food waste across Essex and Hertfordshire.

The partnership sees GoGetters take on food wastage in the delivery industry, by offering customers huge discounts on food that would otherwise end up being thrown away.

GoGetters are now encouraging and working with their partnered restaurants across the local area, to assist them with shifting over to the ‘Too Good to Go’ platform, to minimise food wastage.

‘Too Good to Go’ is a global app which allows restaurants to upload items, meals & stock which would otherwise be thrown away, and allow customers to collect them at a huge discounted rate. This encourages stores to have less stock hit the bins, and more food hit hungry mouths!

Lee Nicolaou and Owen Barrow of GoGetters said: "We are extremely excited about this partnership, and really looking forward to seeing what the future holds for the market. Being in the food industry, we know the importance of minimising food waste and making sure we are all doing our part to offset our footprint.

"We work with many great local restaurants who we are thrilled to have on board, and seeing less food hit the bins is a rewarding thought. Being at the centre of food delivery and representing many different brands, we are proud to be taking this fight on, and look forward to this partnership growing’."
