A GLASWEGIAN cafe has teamed up with an app to prevent unsold food from being wasted in the city.

Tinderbox and food waste fighting app Too Good To Go have joined forces to rescue handmade sandwiches, healthy salads, wraps, paninis or even sweet cakes and pastries from all six of the cafe’s stores.

Too Good To Go connects businesses that have unsold food with consumers, who can save surplus food from going to waste. Consumers simply download the free Too Good To Go app and search for nearby restaurants and retailers with leftover food.

They then purchase the food for a great price through the app, and collect it from the store.

Carlo Ventisei, managing director at Tinderbox said: “Tinderbox has been serving the local Glasgow community since 1998.

“We have seen many changes during that time, some for the better and some for the worse and we can without a doubt say that ‘Too Good To Go’ is one of the best things we have seen happen and one that we are delighted and proud to be involved with – help reduce food waste!”

Jamie Crummie, co-founder of Too Good To Go UK, said: “We’re excited to welcome Tinderbox to the Too Good To Go offering in Glasgow.d in return.”
