Our core business:
Take an active role in reducing supermarket food waste Smartway began from an alarming observation:
France throws away almost 5.5 million tonnes of still-edible food every year and more than one-third of global food production ends up in the dustbin. We're aware of the climate emergency, and the significance of food waste in our model. We can't go on like this!
Which is why Smartway's mission is to develop simple technical solutions accessible to everyone, to combat food waste at mass retail outlets in France and internationally (independent and chains).
Food Waste Management System
A store throws away as much as it earns: 'scrap' represents 1.5% of a store's turnover, or the equivalent of its net profit. To respond to this emergency, Smartway has created the first Food Waste Management System (FWMS) platform to optimise the end-of-life pathway for food products.
Relying on artificial intelligence, this guides in-store teams to detect products approaching their expiry date and to decide the best way to repurpose them: labelling with a suitable discount or simplified donation to charitable organisations.
Food Waste Management System solution
We have the keys to solve this global issue and be committed to responsible distribution
Since 2012, with our support, our partner distributors and their consumers have saved: • 56,846 tonnes of food • or the equivalent of 2,130,000 meals per month • which comes to more than 3,000 tonnes of CO2 avoided per month
Together, let's build a daily life without waste
Smartway (Zéro-Gâchis, or 'Zero Waste') is a sincere human adventure involved in the fight against food waste.
