Radisson Hotel Group, one of the world’s leading hotel groups, is proud to announce a strategic partnership with Too Good To Go in Europe to reduce food waste and have a positive impact on the climate.
Too Good To Go is a social impact company dedicated to fighting global food waste and its negative impact on the environment, including the waste of other natural resources. The new partnership aims to reduce food waste in Radisson Hotel Group hotels throughout Europe.
Globally it is estimated that 40% of all food is wasted. Over-ordering, over-preparation and over-trimming in restaurants can lead to significant volumes of waste. The partnership with Too Good To Go builds on Radisson Hotel Group’s current work towards responsible consumption. Radisson Hotel Group has already implemented measures such as portion control and improved food storage to aid in preventing food waste, and is now taking the fight against food waste one step further by selling ready-to-eat meals on the Too Good to Go app.
The Too Good To Go app is a solution that allows businesses to redistribute surplus food at the end of the shift or day to combat food waste. The app connects businesses with customers who want to buy this food at a set, reduced price and help preserve the environment — reducing food, energy and water wastage, as well as the associated CO² footprint of the food that would otherwise go to waste. The free app is now the largest B2C marketplace for surplus food in the world.
The goal of the partnership is to locally redistribute the surplus food of Radisson Hotel Group hotels in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Norway, United Kingdom, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland via the Too Good To Go app.
Since its activation, Radisson Hotel Group has already saved 15,367 meals from going to waste, which corresponds to a CO² reduction of 37.6 tons.
