Blakemore Retail has signed up all 275 of its Spar convenience stores across England and Wales to the Too Good To Go app.
The Too Good To Go app launched in the UK in 2016 to help tackle food wasted by saving fresh and short-dated meals and products thrown away by restaurants and retailers.
Blakemore Retail managing director, Matt Teague, said: “The app enables customers to get some fantastic deals at the same time as encouraging them to try new products that they might not usually buy as part of their regular shop.
“The bags have proved very popular with shoppers, and since registering our first stores on the app we have saved an incredible 17,400 bags of food from going to waste.
“This practice of reducing food waste has now become the normal way of working across our retail estate, and we’re also seeing retailers from AF Blakemore’s independent Spar estate increasingly eager to sign up to the app too.”
