Nisa renews Too Good To Go partnership

A mission has been launched for 1,000 Nisa stores to save more than two million kilograms of CO2e emissions from going to waste, which represents the annual emissions of 300 UK residents.

Nisa has announced it is strengthening its support of the food waste fighting app Too Good To Go for the second year with a new campaign to increase the number of Nisa retailers signed up and to help further reduce food waste.

A mission has been launched to grow the partnership to 1,000 stores which will reportedly save more than two million kilograms of CO2e emissions from going to waste, which represents the annual emissions of 300 UK residents.

Currently, 100 Nisa stores are involved in the Too Good To Go partnership. Between the stores, Nisa saved more than 46,000 Magic Bags of food in the last 48 months and also saved 115,000kg of CO2e from going to waste.

As part of the campaign, a video has been created to promote the partnership, along with a flyer that is being shared with partners by Nisa’s retail development managers to raise awareness.

Ian Bacon, responsible for leading the Too Good To Go partnership at Nisa, said: “This new momentum is really exciting, and we are confident we can work with Too Good To Go to hit our ambitious target and get 1,000 Nisa stores on board over the next year.

“The stores already using Too Good To Go have shared positive feedback about the simplicity of the system and the impact it has on the community, and we are actively promoting the initiative on store visits and in conversations with our partners.”

Jay Javid, from PGNJ Limited, a Nisa partner based in Glasgow, said: “We launched Too Good To Go about six months ago and have saved £15,000 worth of food going to waste in nine stores. It’s a brilliant concept.”

Paschalis Loucaides, UK managing director at Too Good To Go, said: “I’m excited to build on this great success together, to ensure that even more food is eaten and enjoyed, instead of wasted. Reducing food waste is the number one solution to tackling climate change and I’m looking forward to taking even bigger strides in our partnership with Nisa.”
