Anti-Waste Pop-Up Created in LA to Combat Food Waste


Food waste is an enormous problem. Approximately 40 percent of all food produced goes uneaten every year. Food suppliers and restaurants are a big part of the problem.

Choco, an app that provides free order management technology to restaurants and food suppliers in an effort to transition the world to sustainable food systems, is collaborating with three LA restaurants to host an anti-waste pop-up November 19- 21 called Waste is Gold.
