Nowadays we live in a world of convenience, with fast-paced lifestyles and a culture which demands (sometimes unrealistic) expectations of quality, which unfortunately means excess waste. Well here’s where our next Startup comes in…
Let us introduce you to Yume.
These guys have a pretty impressive mission: to create a world without waste by facilitating the sale and donation of surplus food, that may have otherwise been discarded. Yume was founded after witnessing the amount of food that’s wasted in the commercial food sector. It’s estimated that between 400,000 and 600,000 TONNES of this wasted food is not only accessible, it’s edible and good quality which can not only be rescued but eaten and better yet- enjoyed.
Talk about making a difference right?! We’re really looking forward to meeting the team, and getting to know more about all things Yume at this years Above All Human event. Still haven’t got your tickets? Check them out here!
