WHAT IS TOO GOOD TO GO?
Our mission is to place the lost value back onto food as something that should be eaten and not thrown away. Through the TGTG app we’re raising awareness of food waste by making surplus restaurant food available for collection before a restaurant closes its breakfast, lunch or dinner service.
Here’s how it works:
Download the App and order from restaurants, cafes and bakeries near you.
Head off to collect your food in the designated time window.
Show your order confirmation, grab your food and enjoy!
If food waste were a country, it would be the third largest emitter of greenhouse gases behind the US and China
- United Nations
UK restaurants throw away 600,000 tonnes of edible food each year - the equivalent of 84 Eiffel Towers
Less than a quarter of the food wasted in the UK, US and Europe would provide enough to alleviate the world from food poverty.

Rotting food releases methane - a potent greenhouse gas that's 21 times more damaging to the environment than carbon dioxide.
