Reducing food waste

Reducing food waste

Salling Group is dedicated to improving its environmental impact. The group continuously launches new CSR initiatives, of which food waste reduction plays a key role.

Together with Sprinting Software, Salling Group has developed its highly successful app, Food Waste Fighter (Danish: Mad Skal Spises). The app aims to reduce the amount of food thrown away due to expiring.

The app allows the user to see shops with food items that are soon to expire.

Users select a shop on a map and can then see the item list for each shop, pictures of products, product details, and price reductions.

The app is automatically fed by data coming from each store’s back office system. Store personnel enter a new price, time interval and amount, which is then used in both the app and the store cash registry system.

Food Waste Fighter has a crowdsourcing functionality as it is open for non-Salling Group shops to register and display their own soon-to-expire products.
