We are back from the holiday and we want to start the new year with our Monday series "Have you met..?" with the story of our member Elin Aronsen Beis and her fight on making food supply system more efficient and reduce food waste.
Who is Elin?
My name is Elin Aronsen Beis and I am founder and CEO of Foodloopz.
What is Foodloopz?
The dream with Foodloopz is to make the food supply system more efficient and reduce food waste for both small and large businesses. We match make batches of surplus food & beverages and potential food waste between all kinds of businesses in the food supply system. We can help a farmer to find a new costumer for produce that their normal customer would have turned down. Or help a producer to donate products with a short due date to charity. Or help a cafe sell surplus produce to another cafe next door.
We are changing the way food is being bought, sold and donated B2B and give our costumes and member companies unexpected solutions and opportunity.
What’s the best thing that happened to Foodloopz so far?
The best thing is all the successful loops that bring value to both sides of the deal as well as prove our concept and on top of that, the positive environmental impact our service contributes with. That is our purpose!
Why do you think this is now the time?
Because future generations need us to take responsibility for our way of living, of producing, consuming and trading food. Food supply and food production have such a huge impact on our planet and we just can not ignore the data saying we are responsible for climate change, extinction of species, pollution, scarcer access to resources etc. We are smart people who should make smart decisions. And all companies working together with us in this matter have made a smart move towards a more efficient system.
Your message to the world:
Let´s work smart and efficient together to build a better tomorrow. We owe it to our children and all living animals, insects and plants. It's fantastic to be a part of positive change, it gives you a reason to get up in the morning! Come join the loop revolution!
