North London based sustainable supermarket Forrist can now be found on TooGoodToGo, the online app that allows stores and restaurants to sell any food surplus that they may have at a discounted price before it is thrown away. TooGoodToGo has exploded in popularity as of recent for its simple yet superb concept - a convenient way for people to score on some great discounted goods whilst also contributing to the reduction of food waste.
So it’s no surprise that Forrist, the UK’s first online plastic-free supermarket who pride themselves on being waste-free in every possible facet have made themselves a home on the app, saying “TooGoodToGo was really a no brainer for us. We do our best to be as close to zero waste as possible, but surplus food is always a possibility when you’re running a service like ours. This app allows us to transparently extend the life of these products, and greater fulfil our waste-free mission” Forrist’s buy by weight approach already allows them to reduce food waste, making sure customers are only taking as much as they need.
And, rest assured, all of the products on offer are perfectly safe to eat, drink and use, they are simply nearing their best before date, where they’ll still be perfectly edible, but just not at their optimal quality. “Instead of selling items which are already past their best before on our website, we want to give people the opportunity to enjoy their products at their very best while they can, and certainly don’t want to see anything going to waste.”
Of course, there is no waste at the Forrist, so you know when you pick up your magic bag it won’t be a plastic one! You could even come with your own bags or containers to take your TooGoodToGo treasure away with you, and reduce the need for extra packaging, on top of the food waste and personal cost you’re already reducing.
