STORY: The Flour Pot Bakery teams up with Too Good to Go to prevent food waste
Artisan bakery and cafe, The Flour Pot Bakery, has teamed up with food app with a conscience, Too Good To Go, to prevent its artisan food from going to waste.
The Flour Pot Bakery has become a firm favourite in Brighton’s cafe culture, offering homemade bread, pastries, cakes and treats. The partnership with Too Good To Go means that any unsold produce from all six stores in Brighton can now be rescued by consumers through the app, ensuring all the hard work of The Flour Pot’s bakers does not go to waste.
Too Good To Go lets people buy surplus food from restaurants, retailers and producers to stop it from going to waste. They simply download the free Too Good To Go app and search for nearby businesses with unsold food. App users then purchase a ‘Magic Bag’, collect it at an allotted time and enjoy it.
Tim Wallsgrove, Chief Operating Officer of The Flour Pot Bakery, said: “At the Flour Pot Bakery, we make everything fresh daily, and wastage management has always been a challenge, especially in a town like Brighton where the ebb and flow of locals and tourists can be somewhat unpredictable. We have always partnered with food waste charities, but Too Good To Go offers us a different, easy to use avenue that not only is great for the environment but also helps us recover some of the cost of the waste, which is essential for an independent family business like ours.”
Paschalis Loucaides, UK Country Manager at Too Good To Go said: “We’re delighted to have welcomed The Flour Pot Bakery into our growing community of over 4,000 partner stores. Our collaboration will mean that the bakery’s delicious food will be eaten rather than wasted, and I know our app users are going to love their rescued treats. I’m looking forward to seeing the impact we can make together.”
