Managed retail food diversion service

65% of food typically discarded by retailers is still edible.

Don’t let that food go to waste when 1 in 8 people in Canada is going hungry.

We can help you divert more of your unsalable food to the people in our communities that need it most.

Number 1

Match

Reduce the volume of food going to waste

Our in-store training will help your staff know what is safe to donate, so they can keep more food out of the garbage bin and onto the plates of people who need it.

Maximize your community impact

Build on your existing donation program or connect to a network of new organizations to donate to.

Food that’s still edible will go to charities to be turned into meals (and we financially compensate them for recording donation data, to help you maximize your community impact). Where possible, the food that’s left will go to farmers for animal feed.

Guaranteed pick up

We provide a commercial guarantee that your unsalable food will be collected on the schedule you decide, so no food is left sitting on your dock.

Number 2

Manage

Minimal impact on staff

Store staff don’t have to waste time broadcasting the availability of donations. Your unsalable food will be collected on the schedule you decide, so your staff can go about their day without disruption.

Pick up scheduling and data collection managed for you

We manage your donation recipients and collection of data so your staff don’t have to. All they have to do is put food aside, ready for collection.

Ongoing support when you need it

Whenever your stores, staff and charity partners need support, we’re here for you.

Number 3

Measure

Significantly reduce your greenhouse gas emissions

You will save approximately 3 metric tonnes of CO2e from entering the atmosphere for every metric ton of food that you donate. And so, by donating your unsalable food to charities instead of sending it to a landfill, you can reduce your organization’s carbon footprint seven-fold.

Track what you're donating with verifiable and auditable data

Get detailed data on the food you are diverting for your sustainability reports. Track the volume of your donations, the departments it comes from, where it goes and the impact it is having.

Tell the world what you're doing

Get cause marketing materials to help you shout from the rooftops about the great work you’re doing to support your local community and the environment.

With the increase in commercial organic bans, waste hauling costs are increasing by up to 65%

What our clients are saying

Not only was this program clearly the right thing to do, we also discovered it was saving our staff time. They weren’t having to depackage all of the food to put it into organic waste.
