Over 5,000 people now using OLIO food waste app in Guernsey

More than 5,000 people in Guernsey are now using the OLIO food waste app.

It was introduced to the island in 2018, following a successful launch in Jersey the year before.

All food can be put onto the app, including items nearing their sell-by-date or home-grown produce, and then people can collect it. The goal is to reduce food waste and become more sustainable.

Now, supermarkets and hotels are among those getting involved.

In using the app and giving away food that would otherwise have gone in the bin, islanders and businesses are saving on the cost of their black bag waste as well.
