In the European union food waste is estimated at some 88 million tonnes in a single year, which equates to 173 kilograms per person. The total amount of food produced in the EU in 2011 was around 865 kg/person. This means that we are wasting 20% of the total food produced. Le Marche d’Arthur proposes a solution to this problem at enterprise level, allowing enterprise’s canteens to not waste the unsold food, selling at a lower price point.
To summarise, Le Marché d’Arthur will allow to :
- Reduce food waste at entreprise level
- Allow canteens to monetise unsold food
- Allow employees to get food at reduced price
