Welcome to Phoenix! Come share our vision of a waste-free world, one where all unsold goods find takers, where discarding food is no longer an option.
That said, we need to get real! There is still so much work left to do, even if, since 2014, we have run the extra mile. In a country where we waste more than enough food to feed the 8 million in our who struggle with the most basic necessities, we have decided to tackle the subject of food waste through solidarity.
As a result, we have created the first digital platform which allows us to connect those who sometimes have too much (such as large-scale retail, manufacturers and their warehouse facilities...) to those who do not have enough (via 1,500 partner organizations and charities). After half a dozen years of existence, we have saved 100 million meals, brought together 180 employees from some 20 different cities and developed our project in 2 other European countries - Spain and Portugal.
But it's not over yet! We are working twice as hard to eradicate waste. In addition to our digital platform designed to facilitate donations to organizations providing aid in the form of foodstuffs, we launched an anti-waste application for the general public in 2019, so as to allow everyone to fight wastage at a personal level. This idea was an obvious hit, since 1,000,000 of you have already downloaded the Phoenix application to recover unsold goods from your stores at low prices. The next step ? Pack your bags and come on a trip to reduce waste in Belgium and Italy. Though we do not yet know what tomorrow will bring, we are not even close to giving up! Because deep down, we can be sure of one thing - in all life, as with waste ... All Is not Lost.
