New Smartphone App Hopes To Reduce Food Waste By Restaurants, Grocery Stores

May 12, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
U.S. supermarkets and eateries toss out $15 billion in edible foods annually. Now a team of software developers has created an app that will allow the foodservice industry to sell day-old pastries, foods near the sell-by date and imperfect produce to consumers, rather than sending them to landfills. Using the app, dubbed PareUp, grocery stores and restaurants will be able to list their discount-priced leftovers for consumers to browse on their smartphones along with pick-up times. The app – one of several intiatives by entrepreneurs to battle the huge global food waste problem – is being pilot tested in New York City at cafes like Breads Bakery and Oslo Coffee Roasters.
