Build a Marketplace Exclusively for Surplus Food to Reduce Food Waste
Yume Food is an online marketplace for quality surplus food products that connects suppliers with buyers to help mitigate the 9.5 million tonnes of food that annually goes to landfill.
For a range of reasons, primary producers, wholesalers, distributors and manufacturers can be left with tonnes of surplus food and a lack of time or the contacts to re-sell it. When they provide product details and information to Yume, it is then uploaded to the marketplace and made available to a growing network of buyers.
The buyers can choose from many available products at discounted prices, sorting by category, price, best before date, deal size, and even receive notifications about new products that have been added to the platform.
Yume facilitates a seamless transaction between the buyer and supplier and helps to arrange the delivery of goods and can also facilitate donations to a growing network of registered food rescue organisations, helping ensure edible food gets to the people who need it most.
