'Zero Gachis' Lets Shoppers Know When Fresh Food is About to Expire

"Waste not, want not" is how the saying goes and that's what at the center of Zéro Gâchis. Grocery stores throw away tons and tons (yes, literal tons) of food each year and much of it could still be eaten. Could an app possibly be able to stop this from happening by letting shoppers know when food products are about to expire? What if they were discounted?

This innovation is a win-win situation for both shoppers and those who sell produce -- less waste (and more profit) for all. Based in France, this group won first prise at Startup Weekend Bretagne and continues to make strides in the business, environment and social worlds.
