From waste to taste
Zéro Gâchis’ application connects consumers with retailers offering discounts to reduce food waste.
Merchants who have products close to the expiry date in stock can sell it with enticing price reductions, while consumers will be alerted to the price cuts in real-time.
Why it matters
This process is an opportunity to reduce the amount of food wasted, by providing a saving for shoppers and increasing sales for businesses.
Also, customers will be able to gain loyalty points on the website each time they take advantage of discounts, which will in turn help charities in France.
Is this a way not only to promote your business but to remind your customers of your corporate responsibility effort on a daily basis?

Dr. Loren Cordain likens the modern human diet to putting diesel in a car designed to run on gas. So, he has written “The Paleo Diet” with instructions on how to eat like our ancestors. The Paleo Diet cuts out dairy, cereals, refined sugars, salted and processed foods while promoting lean meats, seafood, vegetables, fruits and nuts—essentially only what a caveman would have eaten.
