Here we go !

1-Good To Go

Do you care about the environment? A free app which allows you to purchase unsold food at the end of service from shops and restaurant. With this App do not waste any food. App available in Europe, the US, and the UK.

How does it work?

Here are the step-by-step. You’ll see, it’s easier than it looks!

Create an account. You will then geolocate to see which partner merchants are around you who offer you to save baskets. You can also choose the location you prefer. Handy, if you want to organize yourself on the go!
Reserve the surprise baskets of your choice in the shops you like.

A little tip: the baskets are available for the next day 15 minutes after the end of the day’s collection. The baskets are then indicated by the mention “Tomorrow.” Of course, if baskets are still available on the same day, you can also go and save them.
Save the planet and get your baskets! Also, think about the oceans and bring your packaging and containers.
You will be reminded of the time and day of collection in the confirmation email and the receipt that you will find in the app. Once there, present your ticket to the merchant, who will validate it.
Small precision, the basket is “surprise.” It is impossible to choose or specify what you want in your basket since the merchant prepares the baskets according to his unsold items.

Don’t panic; we have more than one trick up our sleeve for those with dietary restrictions! You can filter the businesses by “special regime.” Read the descriptions of the shops carefully, and you will inevitably find what you are looking for. And even if you end up with a product you don’t like, share it with your loved ones!

Love this concept ! And you?

I really like this App because they automatically add the open hours, contact information, and photos so whenever you visit, you know when to go and what to expect.

3- Yuka

Scan food products with clear information on the health impact instantly. Use barcode scanning to simplify healthy food shopping. New in USA!

Yuka is a Free Application available on Google Play and the App Store, the purpose of which is to inform users about the dangerousness of the foods they put in their shopping cart. The principle is straightforward; you have to launch the application and scan a product’s barcode to access files relating to it immediately.
A general score between 0 and 100 is assigned according to objective criteria and classifies foods into four categories: bad, mediocre, useful, and excellent. The user can then discover the characteristics of the product, particularly its qualities and defects. Thus, he is aware of the number of calories contained in 100 g, saturated fat, sugar, salt, protein, fiber, etc.

He can also see the additives listed in the product; these are classified into four categories: safe, limited risk, moderate risk, and high risk. If the item in question is unhealthy, Yuka offers similar products but with much better nutritional qualities.

A Premium version exists to be able to scan articles offline, search for products by writing their name (therefore without having to check them), access the complete history of its scans, and customize the application accordingly. Their food preferences (presence of gluten, lactose, palm oil, etc.).

Very Useful App.
