OLIO – The Food Sharing App
OLIO is a food sharing app, created in the UK by business school friends Tessa Clarke and Saasha Celestial-One. Both founders have personal experiences that informed their understanding of the food industry and the effects of food waste.
With one third of all the food produced in the world eventually going to waste, OLIO seeks to solve this massive global inequality through this neighbour-to-neighbour food-sharing app. Users simply upload a photo of their unwanted food with a short description and pick-up location, giving local fellow OLIO users all the information they need to share, instead of waste, surplus food. The platform has already been used by 1.5 million users in forty-nine countries.
