One-third of all food produced is thrown away annually, resulting in 1.3 billion tonnes of waste worldwide.
The food industry takes a major toll on the environment, from the staggering amount of resources required in production and distribution, to the CO2 emissions from waste in landfills. It’s time to make a change and that’s where Karma comes in.
Karma’s ultimate mission is to ensure that great food is never wasted. We want to lead the shift towards a more sustainable society, with the belief that we’re stronger together. If everyone takes small steps in tackling this issue, we can make a meaningful difference for the future!
Karma is a Swedish startup founded in Stockholm, November 2016. The app connects surplus food from restaurants, cafes and grocery stores to consumers for a lower price. As a result, users eat great food for less and businesses receive an additional revenue stream — all while reducing food waste.
Karma has reached 150 Swedish cities, working with 2000 retailers, and attracting 500,000 app users. In February 2018, Karma launched in London and one year later, setup a third market in Paris. To date, 295 tonnes food has been rescued with the app!
