Our Mission

One third of the food the world produces is wasted or lost – every year. From farm-to-fork, it occurs on all steps of the food chain. The waste can be in different forms like inefficient harvesting, misshaped fruits and misfit vegetables, over buying, half eaten meals or spoiled food thrown into kitchen trash cans. All these contribute to the growing problem of water scarcity, climate change and significantly impacts global food security.

Our platform allows you to share your ideas and co-create ways to end food wastage. We will make sure your ideas are heard by the right people. We will also work together with organisations to bring these ideas to life.


  • Together, we can create a world without wastage, free of hunger!

You waste more than you think.

Each year, food that is produced but not eaten guzzles up a volume of water equivalent to the annual flow of the Volga river and adds 3.3 tonnes of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. #EndFoodWastage. Source: unep.org

Empowering home cooks / Shared by Naveena

Stop Spild Af Mad – ‘stop wasting food’ – is a Danish group aiming to stop food waste in the home. Born as a small Facebook campaign, it is now the country’s largest non-profit consumer movement against food waste.

The group shares knowledge on ways to reduce how much gets thrown away at home – from how to cook with leftovers, to savvy shopping and distributing surplus food to those in need.

One of its victories was to inspire Danish supermarket Rema 1000 to replace buy-one-get-one-free offers with discounts that don’t encourage over-buying.

Culinary Misfits / Shared by Liz

Started by two friends, Culinary Misfits seeks out the ugly vegetables at grocery stores, farmers markets, and restaurants and turns them into delectable dishes at the events they cater in the city. Culinary Misfits are three-legged carrots or voluptous beets. Vegetables which don’t fit the beauty standards and therefore won’t make it in to a supermarket. Instead they are often wasted. Those are the ingredients the two Designers Lea & Tanja work with, coz they don’t like standards and rather decided to celebrate the beauty of natural diversity. They founded the Culinary Misfits.
