An app for restaurants to sell discounted leftovers (instead of throwing them away)

If you’ve ever worked in the hospitality industry you’ll know just how much food goes to waste at the end of a dinner shift. Kilos upon kilos. So a group of non-wasters got together to create an app – PareUp – that allows users to buy leftover restaurant goodies.

The mobile app ‘will store inventories of participating retailers’ products, allow retailers to update and set prices for the listings, and inform customers of the offerings for the day’. A pretty neat idea, right? Not only will it save you those late night dumpster dives, but it will also save good food from going to landfill.
