A new App was launched in the app store this month providing users with an accessible way to help our environment while saving money at the same time. The app, called ‘Foodprint’ is a mobile platform that allows users to purchase food from their favourite nearby cafes and restaurants at mega discounts. The catch? All the food available is food that would otherwise go to waste.

Foodprint is an environmental initiative to help lower the amount of food that gets wasted in New Zealand. We produce over 50,000 tonnes of food waste, and 60% of this is completely good food that can be easily rescued – it just needs the right platforms.

Enter: Foodprint. Through this app, cafes and restaurants are able to list food and beverage items off their menu that is at risk of going to waste, such as pre-made items that find themselves still in the cabinet near the end of the day, or full meals when the ingredients have been prepped and need to be used.

Users can then go on the app, search for a dish they’re craving or scroll through the available items from their favourite places. They are able to order and pay for the items straight from the app, at a heavily discounted price. Then, the food is ready at the restaurant for users to go and collect.

Bird On A Wire is super excited to be partnering with this great social initiative. It’s great to be able to reduce the amount of food waste in New Zealand. The food that’s available will differ from day to day, but they aim to make all of their excess healthy salads and chicken available through the app.

All of Bird On A Wire’s Auckland locations in Ponsonby, Takapuna and Orakei Bay are currently live and ready for customers to order food from the app, as it becomes available. It is only available in Auckland so far, but they have big plans to grow to include restaurants all across New Zealand.  

The app is available to download for both iPhone and Android, with a great collection of Auckland eateries already on board.
