The world’s largest anti-food waste app, Too Good To Go, has officially launched in Galway.

Too Good To Go lets people buy surplus food and drink from restaurants, grocery stores, pubs, cafes and producers to stop it from going to waste.

Galwegians can simply download the free Too Good To Go app and search for their nearby store with unsold food. They then purchase a ‘Surprise Bag’ at a fraction of the original retail price, collect it at an allotted time and enjoy it.

There are already 17 Galwegian businesses signed up to fight food waste with Too Good To Go. Brands include Temple Cafe, Marmalade Bakery, Mountain Road Kitchen, Mocha Beans, Ember Firehouse and Rouge.

Having first launched in Dublin in October, Too Good To Go has already amassed a community of over 50,000 app users and over 330 food businesses, who together have saved over 35,000 bags of food from going to waste. That means to date Dubliners have saved 62,500 kg of CO2e, the equivalent of that emitted from 581 flights from Dublin to London.

Now having launched in Galway, there is a huge potential for Galwegians to join the food waste fighting movement. In fact a recent survey commissioned by Too Good To Go found that almost half of Galwegians (47%) have included sustainable habits in their 2022 resolutions*.

“I’m thrilled to be launching Too Good To Go in Galway,” said co-founder of Too Good To Go, Jamie Crummie. “We’ve already seen a huge appetite for fighting food waste since we arrived in Ireland in October last year and I’m excited to see how much of an impact Galwegians can have in the coming months and years.”
