We’re driven to create a better world for future generations through reducing food waste while creating affordable access to food for everyone. 

Our Story

It all started with a good deal on perfectly good food.

 

Marc and Matthew were working together at a coffee shop one day, when the owner of the café approached them and offered a few ready-made meals before they became expired. They couldn’t believe their luck. That exchange led to Marc and Matt chatting with the owner and found out that this problem was actually more common than you’d think; they told Matt and Marc to come to the coffeeshop the next day to try and hunt out another opportunity, but luckily there weren’t any that day.

That moment led Marc and Matt, both environmental engineering graduates passionate about technology for the planet, to meet and chat with local food business owners and see what led to this problem, and how to best mitigate it.

 

With Scrapless, their mission was simple: use the platform to help businesses make data-driven decisions and redistribute surplus goods.
