Eliminating waste across the food industry to fight climate change /
One-third of all food produced is wasted. This is a global issue for the environment, the economy and society at large. Across Central Europe, food waste is also causing annual losses of up to 2 billion EUR to businesses. Munch is eliminating waste across the Hungarian food industry through an online marketplace, starting with restaurants, bakeries and supermarkets. Munch offers a platform for food service providers to sell their surplus food at a discount, thereby creating a win-win-win situation for the seller, the buyer and the environment. To date, Munch has saved 100K+ portions of food from waste, reducing CO2 emissions by 300+ tonnes and involving 400+ partners and 20K+ paying customers in fighting food waste and climate change. With a solid professional team and a user-friendly platform in place, Munch is ready to expand into other markets in the CEE region. To serve customers in at least two other markets outside of Hungary and build local teams in each market, the social enterprise successfully raised fresh growth capital in early 2023 with support from FASE.
