OLIO is the world’s only neighbour-to-neighbour food sharing app, and our mission is to solve the problem of food waste in the home & local community, at scale. We do this by connecting anyone with spare food – which can be households or food businesses – with neighbours living nearby who would like it. Globally, over one third of all the food we produce gets thrown away, which is worth over $1 trillion; and in a country like the UK half of all food waste takes place in the home. OLIO solves this problem with our award-winning mobile & web app. Over the past 5 years OLIO has grown from a local initiative in North London to a global movement. We now have 4 million users who have given away 25 million portions of food, in 59 countries. OLIOers have also given away 3 million household items in our non-food section; and the new ‘MADE’ section in the app which connects neighbours to sell homemade food and hand-made crafts, is growing extremely fast. Underpinning OLIO’s incredible growth has been our volunteer programme, with over 50,000 people reaching out to spread the word about OLIO in their local community. We also work with over 2,500 business locations across the UK via our Food Waste Heroes Programme to enable them to have zero food waste locations. We have a bold ambition to have 1 billion OLIOers by 2030, given that reducing food waste has been identified by Project Drawdown as the #1 most important thing humanity can do to mitigate the worst effects of the climate crisis. Our work has been widely recognised, most notably by the United Nations who highlighted OLIO as a “beacon” for the world, and by Vivatech who awarded OLIO “Next European Unicorn”. 🎉 JOIN OUR TEAM!
