Afreshed saves Groceries
WIN-LAB began to develop a community platform together with Afreshed GmbH – afreshed.at – as a part of a FFG Basisprogramm. This platform connects consumers, producers and logistics companies in order to save consumable food that otherwise would be burned in a biogas plant or composted. Yearly 800,000 tons of groceries that don’t meet that specific standards of the wholesale trade are sorted out. Afreshed launched a platform that simultaneously saves those groceries, allows farmers to get a better offer for their products and presents customers fresh food. This idea convinced the Jurors of the Austrian PULS4 show “2 Minuten 2 Millionen” to make an investment. The FHOOE also supports to stop this food waste.
