OLIO – Use your phone to get smart with food waste

One way to reduce the amount of food you’re throwing away is to share it with people in your neighbourhood – and a new smartphone app promises to help you do just that.

What is it?oilio_app

The Olio App connects neighbours with each other and with local independent shops to share their surplus food. This could include food nearing its sell-by-date from shops, cafes and markets, spare vegetables from an allotment, cakes from a baker or groceries from household fridges.

How does it work?

Once you’ve downloaded the app, simply take a picture of the items and add them to OLIO for a neighbour to collect, be it from home, the store, an OLIO Drop Box, or another agreed location.
