Food Waste in Canada
One third of all food produced globally is wasted. Shocking, eh?
The truth is that Canadians are throwing out more food than they realize – food that could, at one point, have been eaten.
Inevitably, some food waste is unavoidable – this is the food that can’t generally be sold or eaten, such as bones, vegetable peelings, egg shells, tea bags, and coffee grounds.
Avoidable food waste is the edible food that ends up in the compost or in the bin. Unfortunately, we often waste good food because we buy too much, cook too much, or don’t store it correctly.
Who we are?
BestFoodSaver is a startup founded by Karima and Tarik a married couple for over 9 years .Preventing food from being wasted is our top priority at home so we developed many practical ways to reduce food waste and save money .
Today, we are ardently trying to reduce food waste in our city of Montreal by launching BestFoodSaver solutions.
BestFoodSaver app connects surplus food from restaurants, cafes and grocery stores to consumers for a lower price . As a result, users eat great food for less and businesses receive an additional revenue stream — all while reducing food waste.
BestFoodSaver's ultimate mission is to ensure that great food is never wasted. We want to lead the shift towards a more sustainable society, with the belief that we’re stronger together. If everyone takes small steps in tackling this issue, we can make a meaningful difference for the future!
What we need :
We are working on a prototype in the form of a web app. We want to develop a fully-functional version for iOS/Android and desktop that will be available for free public download.
We need 15000 CAD $ to accomplish this :
- App development ( IOS and Android).
- Social media campaign.
- contacting all 3000 restaurant in Montreal to pitch our solution.
We invite everyone in the community to be a part of our vision — to reduce food waste, and feed our neighbours.
