This time, Claudi got Leo from MealSaver in front of the mic for you. What an exciting project!
MealSaver is a Berlin-based startup that is passionate about stopping food waste in the gastronomy world. How they do that? With an app that helps food businesses to sell their leftovers & helps us to get a tasty meal for very little money - win, win!
From the small bakery around the corner to big hotel chains… the amounts of food that are going to waste every single day are mind boggling.
MealSaver only launched in October last year, but what they’ve built up since then is simply amazing. And Leo was such a great person to talk to - he spent time researching about food waste at the uni in Berkeley, California & also got the chance to get a taster of the startup community in Silicon Valley.
We chatted about SO many facts, for example:
Why a young passionate startup can change something today, while politicians take years The biggest issues around food waste in our society How generation y is developing a new price tolerance towards sustainable consumption What the factor 1.3 tells us about overproduction of food How the food businesses reacted to the idea of MealSaver How MealSaver uses the help of its community to develop the app further Why you don’t need to have a perfect product to get started And how the Berlin startup scene does compared to silicon valley Make sure to listen up to the end, as Leo made such an AMAZING call out to the world, to you and to everyone who wants to help us changing sth for the better…
And as always, it would be a huge help for me if you could hop over to iTunes and leave me a short review. Tell me how you like the show, it’s what I need to keep me going. Thank YOU!
