A number of companies — including Flashfood, Too Good To Go and FeedBack — have entered the Canadian market billing themselves as an innovative way to simultaneously cut food waste and save money. 

“They are becoming more popular because more and more consumers realise that savings occur more on the back-end of the grocery store experience,” said Sylvain Charlebois, director of the Agri-Food Analytics Lab and professor at Dalhousie University.

“There’s not a whole lot of promotions going on in stores.”

Too Good To Go, a Copenhagen-based company, made its mobile app available in Canada last year and operates in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal so far.

  1. What other products could you do the same for as the apps mentioned here? The key is that the item is perishable
  2. Could you build a business round these apps (delivery…)?
