Foodprint

This innovative app is designed to help minimise New Zealand’s food waste issue

In an effort to reduce waste, new local app Foodprint, is giving restaurants and cafes in Auckland a platform to offer their food to the public at heavily discounted rates instead of disposing of it at closing time. 

The app features anything from sushi to leftover cakes and baked goods or prepared food that remains in cabinets at the end of a trading day. With most food selling for half its original price, the app makes cafe fare more accessible to everyone and provides a timely solution to some of the issues around food waste.

Some of our favourite eateries have jumped on board with the app and speaking from experience, we can guarantee that the quality of the product doesn’t fall short whatsoever. Including the likes of &Sushi, Williams Eatery, Ripe Deli, The Caker, Ozone and Hero Sandwich House, to name a few, downloading Foodprint has been nothing but beneficial to not only our tastebuds but also our wallets and most importantly, the environment.
