The Food Sharing Revolution

The Food Sharing Revolution

Each year over £12bn of perfectly edible food is thrown away by UK households & local communities. OLIO is a revolutionary new app that connects neighbors with each other & local merchants to enable them to trade this surplus food rather than throw it away.Think food nearing its sell-by date in local stores; spare vegetables from the allotment; cupcakes from an amateur baker; the groceries in your fridge when you go away. Users simply add an item with a photo, description, price (if applicable), location and when it’s available for pick-up. Other users can then browse the menu of available items, request what they want and arrange a pick-up via private messaging OLIO is launching in North London this summer, and has >1,500 people signed up to be notified, a dozen founding merchants, 20 Ambassadors (grass roots supporters) and a strong social media following. OLIO is a social enterprise and will generate revenues through taking a platform commission on all items traded for a price.
