Spoiler Alert, Companies: You're Wasting Food
A Boston startup brings retailers, producers, and suppliers under one app to battle the ever prominent issue of food waste
According to UNEP, the United Nations Environment Programme, ‘Roughly one-third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year—approximately 1.3 billion tons—gets lost or wasted.' This is a scary number, which is why a startup in Cambridge, Massachusetts named Spoiler Alert has designed an innovative and potentially highly effective solution.
Spoiler Alert's mission is “to create efficient, connected communities that are empowered to minimize wasted food.” The concept itself is relatively simple: it gets surplus food to qualified food recovery nonprofits in an area that the user wants to help.
