Butcombe Pubs & Inns joins Too Good To Go app

Butcombe Pubs & Inns

Bristol-based pub operator Butcombe Pubs & Inns has announced it is joining the surplus food app Too Good To Go following a successful trial across eight sites in December of last year.

The free app connects its users to businesses in the local area looking to buy surplus food from cafes, pubs, restaurants, supermarkets and producers in an effort to cut down on food waste.

Alice Bowyer, Head of Food at Butcombe Pubs & Inns’ parent company, Liberation Group, said: “After a successful trial earlier this year we saved over 500kgs of CO2e from being released in a relatively short space of time.  Just think of the difference we can make now all sites are onboard.

“We take the issue of food waste and our impact on the planet incredibly seriously and the Too Good To Go app helps us find good homes for unused food and drink products that would have, otherwise, gone in the bin.”

Once they have downloaded the app, customers are shown businesses in their area offering the ‘Magic Bags’ of food. These can then be collected at an allotted time.

Paschalis Loucaides, UK Managing Director, Too Good To Go says:  “I’m thrilled to be extending our partnership with Butcombe Pubs & Inns further, so that we can help save even more delicious food and drink from going to waste.

“Following a really successful trial period, I’m excited to see the continued impact we will have together in reducing the impact of food waste on our planet. This partnership shows you can get delicious food at a great price, all while paving the way for a brighter, greener future – it’s a win-win-win.”
