Join the food sharing revolution with new OLIO app

Did you know that over 1/3 of all food that's produced globally gets thrown away?... If food waste were a country it’d be the 3rd largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world.

OLIO is a free app which connects neighbours with each other and with local businesses to exchange their edible surplus food. Think food nearing its sell-by date in local stores, spare vegetables from the allotment, cupcakes from an amateur baker, or the groceries in your fridge when you go away. The list goes on.

OLIO is super easy. To make food available, simply open the app, add a photo, description, price (if applicable), and when and where the item is available for pick-up.

To access food, simply browse available items near you, request whatever takes your fancy and arrange a pick-up via private messaging.

OLIO believe that small actions can lead to big change. Collectively, one rescued carrot or cupcake at a time, we can build a more sustainable food future.

If you love food, hate waste and want to connect with your community, OLIO is for you.
