Snappy Shopper and Gander pioneer reduce to clear food delivery feature, tackling food waste in Scotland

In Scotland alone, 600,000 tonnes of food and drink waste ends up in landfill each year...

Snappy Shopper, the fast-growing delivery app serving convenience stores, has partnered with Gander, an anti-food waste company, to become the first delivery app offering reduce-to-clear items for home delivery. According to a report by FoodTechNews, Snappy Shopper and Gander are pioneering the move that enables Snappy Shopper customers to purchase reduce-to-clear items as part of their normal shop. The initiative aims to reduce food waste, while offering customers the opportunity to buy fresh food at reduced prices.

The joint venture will initially launch at two CJ Lang stores in Scotland – Spar Abronhill and Spar Stonehouse – for a 12-week trial period. Snappy Shopper believes this new feature could help Scotland reach the Scottish government’s target of reducing food waste by 33% by 2025.

The new feature will not only benefit customers but retailers as well. Retailers can reduce wastage costs, improve their margins, support the local community, and reduce landfill and food waste.

Mike Callachan, founder & chief executive of Snappy Shopper, described the partnership as “a first-of-its-kind feature” and “a landmark moment for grocery delivery.” Sonya Harper, central operations director at Spar Scotland, emphasized that the initiative will reduce the amount of food waste that ends up in landfills. Stacey Williams, head of business development at Gander, added, “We are delighted to partner with Snappy Shopper, Spar Scotland, and Retail Solutions to make this revolutionary retail concept a reality.”
