The Too Good To Go app
Every day, delicious, fresh food goes to waste at cafés, restaurants, hotels, shops and manufacturers – just because it hasn’t sold in time. The Too Good To Go app lets customers buy and collect Surprise Bags of food – at a great price – directly from businesses, to make sure good food gets eaten, not wasted.
