Reduced Food Alert Apps

The Gander App Helps You Save Money and Reduce Food Waste

— August 28, 2019 — Eco
The Gander app gives users real-time updates on food that has been reduced in price and is close to expiring. The app also includes filters for the type of food, dietary restrictions, and distance.

The food waste-reducing app recently announced it will launch in the UK thanks to its new partnership with Henderson Technology's EDGEPos system. The new partnership will allow the Gander app to be directly integrated with stores and increasing efficiency, ensuring the reduced price is updated on the app as soon as the food is stickered in-store.

"Together through this partnership, we can take significant strides towards giving retailers and shoppers alike the ability to have a more sustainable and mindful approach to food shopping," said founder of Gander, Ashley Osborne. The new shift in consumption models will ultimately help both consumers and retailers save money while ensuring food and resources are not wasted.
