Flashfood, a mobile app allowing grocery locations to sell surplus food directly to consumers at a massive discount prior to discarding, has partnered with Longo’s in downtown Toronto for a 3 month beta to reduce their food waste.

Flashfood users see deals on perfectly good surplus food on their phone, usually with three days to a month until the best before date, at massively reduced prices. Users get notified on their phone when new deals are available, pay through their phone, and pick their purchase up at the Flashfood zone in store – same day. Flashfood users then check out just like they normally would while at the store.

Flashfood launched in January with Farm Boy at their Beaverbook location in London, which is still running. Farm Boy has plans to add more stores with Flashfood in the next few weeks in London Ontario.

In their partnership with Flashfood, Farm Boy and Longo’s have diverted over 1,500 meals from landfill – the equivalent GHG emissions to driving more than 1,800km.
