8 apps to help you reduce food waste

Foodloop

This startup is located in Germany, and the app is still in development. But the idea is to connect leftover or unwanted food from supermarket to people who want it. You enter a product of choice in the search, and it shows where there is discounted food close to its sell-by date. Or, plug in your grocery of choice and it will alert you when there are foods for sale.
