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. 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 each year. OLIO solves this 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 over 2 million users who have together shared well over 5 million portions of food – with food being successfully shared in 54 countries and counting. Underpinning this incredible growth has been our volunteer programme, with over 45,000 people reaching out to spread the word about OLIO in their local community and rescue unsold food.

• Translating assets from English to Spanish
