Smart initiatives in Italy

Reducing food waste

Today, one third of the total amount of food produced worldwide is thrown away. And this has a huge cost for societies as a whole, in terms of water usage, greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, etc.

Concerned by the fact that 8 billion euros of food were thrown away in Italy in 2014, Edenred Italy decided to provide over 150,000 restaurants with doggy bags. This action supports the project “Cena dell’Amicizia” of “Il Buono che Avanza”, a charity that created the first network of restaurants that help reduce food waste by encouraging customers to take their leftovers with them.

An app that helps you find the nearest FOOD restaurant

In Italy, an Edenred application allows customers to find their restaurant and pay directly via their smartphone. Furthermore, a partnership with Tripadvisor enables to choose a restaurant wisely, by indicating whether it is part of the FOOD network.

It has become even easier to eat healthy at lunch time!
